How can macro logistical capabilities be assessed togeth-er with micro performance outcomes for enhancing country location decision-making?

Bhardwaj, Debarshee; Kinra, Aseem

Universit├Ąt Bremen, Germany

Technological advancements, increased globalization, political, social, and environmental concerns are changing the world we live in. Firms applying a global strategic management approach to enter a new country have to dynamically assess and align their performance objectives and micro capabilities with the changing macro logistics higher-order capabilities and resources at the regional or country level, and vice versa. Higher-order capabilities are present in a specific location and emerge over time as a result of systematic interactions across firms and institutions, whereas micro capabilities and performance objectives are firm-wide. Previous research on logistics and supply chain performance measurement hasn't precisely addressed this macro-micro perspective with a global strategic management view. Furthermore, this aspect associating macro and micro capabilities and performance has been only projected with the help of case study-based empirical investigation within the previous research. To investigate the magnitude of this association, this research uses an integrative literature review strategy that includes a qualitative content analysis of the most important/cited supply chain performance measurement literature.

With the help of a macro-micro supply chain performance measurement framework adapted from the supply chain performance measurement literature, the findings bring out the link between various macro logistics higher-order resources and capability elements (input) such as collaboration, knowledge sharing between logistics partners, transportation mode and energy efficiency and the strategic firm performance objectives and dynamic micro capabilities (output) such as sustainability and process innovation. It also extends framework propositions to guide future supply chain performance measurement research with a particular emphasis on global supply chain decision-making.

This paper examines the integration of regional food manufacturers into the sup-ply chains of large grocery retailers. It discusses the current integration problems and challenges of those supply chain concepts which are presently used in the food retail sector. In this paper, we assessed direct delivery, milkrun and interme-diate stations with regard to their suitability for integrating regional food manu-facturers into the structures of large grocery retailers and used an Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) approach for the evaluation. The results of the AHP show that milkruns with an intermediate station are best suited for this type of supplier integration.

Globalization and developments in technology have contributed to the growth of numerous industries around the globe which are creating major impacts on to-day's supply chains. The supply chain has drastically changed under the open-ended influence of globalization. The need for different types of mobilities is in-creasing due to urbanization and population growth, rapid development in the E-commerce industry, and the growing expectation of customers. Crowd logistics is one of these techniques that is gaining rapid attention in the logistics industries and many start-ups have started using this method in their business models. This paper has investigated the crowd logistics and the challenges like user trust, data safety and security, security of the financial transactions for both the customer and the crowd and tracking service quality. Using the Blockchain technology, an e-commerce crowd logistics conceptual model is proposed. Moreover, through different scenarios the capabilities of the proposed model besides the detailed flow of the business processes have been discussed. The conceptual model of a Blockchain-based crowd logistics has used the functionalities of Blockchain such as the smart contracts and the DApps and especially has increased the flexibility of the crowd logistics system.
