For example, Gligor and Holcomb (2014) use the RBV to theorize about the influence of logistics capabilities on performance; Manuj, Omar, and Yazdanparast (2013) rely on the RBV to develop their expectations related to the influence of interorganizational learning; and Richey, Adams, and Dalela (2012) apply RBV principles to argue for technology and flexibility as enabling collaboration and time-based logistics quality.
Finally, we address calls for more theory application in the field of supply chain risk management (SCRM; Manuj & Mentzer, 2008).
Manuj and Mentzer (2008a) argue that the risk of any particular type of loss should be conceptualized as the probability of the loss multiplied by the impact.
Firms can use logistics customer service as a differentiating element to compete more effectively in the marketplace (Yazdanparast, Manuj & Swartz, 2010).
The SC/L field is changing rapidly, challenging the skill sets of our working professionals and emphasizing the need for continuous learning (Holcomb, Liao-Troth, and Manrodt 2014; Manuj, Omar, and Yazdanparast 2013; Pohlen 2011).
