Abstract

It is well known by researchers and practitioners that shared risks among actors support integration and collaboration across a supply chain. Moreover many authors have linked risk to performance contribution. Nevertheless these ideas remain still theoretical and in literature applications are missing. The aim of this study is to develop a logical framework in which risk, performance and actors are connected each other. The goal is using the framework as a tool to recognize unbalanced supply chains and the best way to improve them. The benefit should be a better integration among supply chain actors. The logical framework has been thought and then applied in the case of an Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) service.
