Abstract [en]

Purpose – One practical challenge in managing logistics performance concerns the size, or thenumber of actors involved, in a performance measurement (PM) system. The first objective of thispaper is to describe and compare the advantages and disadvantages of four logistics performancemeasurement system sizes. The second objective is to develop a model of the factors affecting logisticsPM system size.

Design/methodology/approach – This is a conceptual paper based on a literature review.

Findings – Internal PM systems were related to advantages connected with convenience and theavoidance of implementation problems. Disadvantages of an applied system were severe, especially ina supply chain context. Supply chain PM systems contained attractive advantages that can be reachedwith an applied system. However, a number of disadvantages in the shape of implementationproblems must be handled. A model of the factors affecting the decision on logistics PM system sizeswas developed. Power, purpose and implementation were found to be important factors. Fivepropositions were formulated.

Research limitations/implications – The contribution of this paper is mainly theoretical; theresults remain unverified until empirical studies are conducted.Practical implications – The paper can be seen as a first step towards new knowledge on howlogistics PM system size is decided.

Originality/value – As little research exists in the area, this paper highlights the theoretical aspectsof a practical challenge
