Evaluating the Supply Chain Resilience Capability in Container Shipping Services — A Partnership Perspective

Increasing the risk of interruptions or shutdowns of supply chains, the development of multiple security initiatives to enhance supply chain security and resilience without affecting efficiency has become an important issue for multinational firms. This study thus aims to examine the supply chain resilience in container shipping services from a partnership perspective. Data collected from a questionnaire survey and a two-step structural equation modeling (SEM) was subsequently performed to test the research hypotheses. Results indicate that relationship orientation is positively related to supply chain security management and supply chain resilience capability, whereas supply chain security management is positively associated with supply chain resilience capability and operational performance. Moreover, result reveals supply chain resilience capability is positively associated with operational performance. However, the impact of relationship orientation on operational performance was not found in this study.
