Abstract

Purpose: Supply Chain Resilience (SCRes) has recently gained increasing attention from practitioners and researchers but few studies provide empirical evidence that show how to achieve resilience. Therefore, this paper proposes a conceptual model based on the literature review to empirically test the role of logistics capabilities to achieve supply chain resilience in the future. Design/Methodology/Approach: The framework is based on the literature review that compiles past empirical and theoretical studies. Findings: The conceptual framework presented all the relevant variables to be empirically tested in subsequent studies. The findings explore the complex interrelationships between logistics capabilities, SCRes and firm performance. This paper does not only provide useful and enhanced understanding of logistics capabilities to achieve supply chain resilience, but it also links the dimensions in a more coherent fashion. Research/Practical Implications: The conceptual framework presented in the paper forms the basis for further discussion and empirical testing. Originality/Value: The holistic approach provides more insight and comprehensive knowledge in order to understand development of SCRes.
