The main objective of this study is to investigate how social relationships enhance supply chain risk information sharing. A multiple-case, holistic design was adopted. Interviews targeted managers in supply chain, procurement, operations and distribution. The study findings revealed that building closeness, motivation and establishing a sense of collective consequence enhances supply chain risk information sharing. This study contributes valuable empirical insights into how social relationships can enhance risk information sharing so that firms can prepare against supply chain disruption.
