Abstract:

This study aims at presenting a holistic view of supply chain responsiveness by simultaneously considering responsiveness at three stages, i.e., supplier responsiveness, downstream responsiveness, and logistics responsiveness. It applies structural equation modelling to study the impact of collaboration, visibility, resilience, sourcing flexibility and order fulfilment flexibility on stage-wise responsiveness in the supply chain. Findings reveal that only collaboration, sourcing flexibility, and order fulfilment flexibility significantly affect the logistics responsiveness. Resilience, sourcing flexibility, and order fulfilment flexibility significantly affect the downstream responsiveness. However, the relationship between determinants and supplier responsiveness is not significantly justified. It may be because of inadequate logistics infrastructure, limited information sharing and narrow collaborative format among Indian companies.
