Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine the applicability of logistics capability for mitigating supply chain uncertainty and risk and improving logistics performance in the Australian courier industry. Based on the resource-based view, a quantitative research study is designed to investigate the relationships among three latent variables: logistics capability, supply chain uncertainty and risk, and logistics performance. Structural equation modelling is used to analyse the data. The results indicate that there are significant relationships between logistics capability, supply chain uncertainty and risk, and logistics performance. The results provide insights into supply chain uncertainty and risk management. This paper provides empirical support for the resource-based view as it applies to mitigating supply chain uncertainty and risk management in the Australian courier industry. These findings suggest that managers might develop and deploy logistics capability to support and enable supply chain risk management strategies.
