Abstract / Description

Purpose: This study aims to explore the mediating role of digital technologies-based Supply Chain Integrating (SCI) strategies on the agri-Supply Chain Performance (SCP) and Firm Performance (FP). This research has introduced recently emerged digital technologies such as IoT. Further, based on theoretical support and an extensive literature review, this research has proposed some hypotheses which have been quantitatively validated for their significance.
Design/methodology/approach: A conceptual model was formulated based on an extensive literature review. Data for this research was gathered from a survey completed by 119 respondents from different departments of agri-firms. Further, Partial Least Square (PLS) based Structured Equation Modelling (SEM) was used to test the proposed hypothetical model.
Findings: The results confirm that IoT-based digital technologies and supply chain processes (organisation integration, information sharing and customer integrations) have a significant positive correlation. Furthermore, supply chain practices are positively associated with SCP. Finally, it has been found that FP is positively impacted by SCP.
Research implications: This research is used to analyse the mediating impacts of digital supply chain processes as a linking strategy for SCP and FP. For practical purposes, this research provides investment decisions for implementing digital technologies in SC strategies. The findings have proposed implications for managers and practitioners in agri-firms based on existing theories - contingency theory and relational view theory. Also, this study suggests the deployment of smarter electronically based tags and readers which improve the data analytics capabilities based on auto-captured data. Thus, the availability of quality information improves the data-driven decisional capabilities of managers at company level.
Originality/value: This is a unique and original study exploring the relationship between digitalisation, resilient agri-food supply chain management practices and firm performance. This research may be extended to other industries in view of the results from SCP and impact of digitalisation.
