Abstract

This study aims to investigate how Logistic Service Providers (LSP) uses their network position and relationships for supply chain risk information sharing. The study builds on the argument that positioning a well-connected firm - especially LSPs for supply chain risk information is a means of building supply chain resilience thereby reducing supply chain disruptions. The study adopts an exploratory case study methodology. Specifically, data will be collected through semi-structured interviews from multiple cases. The paper contributes to research on how to make supply chains more resilient to disruptions. By investigating LSPs network position and supply chain risk information sharing; this study has opened a new dimension of building a resilient supply chain by leveraging on LSPs network position for risk information sharing.
