Risk and resilience in export sustainable supply chain management: a value chain approach

Research output: Contribution to ConferenceAbstract

Abstract

Focal actors are often in control to sustainability-related misbehavior in their supply chain by various stakeholders (Leat et al., 2013; Stone and Rahimifard, 2018). This chain charge effect places focal actors in responsibilities for building reputable systems of risk and resilience in order to manage misbehavior that can happen beyond their direct control (Stone and Rahimifard, 2018). Yet, the present importance of export Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) is positioned on direct suppliers, which lead the focal firms to reconsider those direct and indirect relationships with other chain actors (Yan et al., 2015), that can be a positive source of sustainable value along the supply chain. Previous scholars (e.g. Christopher and Helen, 2004; Pettit, 2011; Stone and Rahimifard, 2018) have called for analyzing export SSCM with the focus on the phenomenon of risk and resilience. Producers, exporters and importers as key chain actors collaborate to
supply a wide range of products to the end-customers in export markets (Esfahbodi et al., 2016). Hence, there is a need to examine key drivers and barriers that have high effects on those actors for establishing their SSCM, especially their systems of risk and resilience in relation to their food chain losses and waste (Leat et al., 2013). These are related to the chain structure, resources and total value as economic of costs and return and non-economic of social and environmental issues. This will create a great sustainable business for actors and
their dyadic relationships where innovation can also occur in SSCM (Fearne et al., 2012). Thus, the study seeks to explore key drivers and barriers for building a system of risk and resilience for export SSCM. Scholars have proposed a number of risk and resilience models aimed at enhancing the lead sustainable performance for a single value chain actor. These models, however, lack the interrelationships of the existing direct and indirect dyads.
