TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigate the impact of revenue sharing contracts on the willingness to share information in a logistics outsourcing relationship and show that revenue sharing can serve as an incentive to get more information from the customer through using a guaranteed revenue share.
Abstract: The objective of this article is to investigate the impact of revenue-sharing contracts regarding the willingness to share information in a logistics outsourcing relationship. A behavioral laboratory experiment is applied to analyze the behavior of the participants with the revenue-sharing contract. The first results imply that revenue-sharing contracts can serve as an incentive to get more information from the customer through using a guaranteed revenue share

TL;DR: In this article, basic characteristics of HGV toll systems are described based on that, these systems' impacts on entrepreneurial processes and resulting changes in business choices are discussed, and a case study on hauliers' reactions on the German HGV Toll is presented.
Abstract: In this article, basic characteristics of HGV toll systems are described. Based on that, these systems’ impacts on entrepreneurial processes and resulting changes in business choices are discussed. Furthermore, a case study on hauliers’ reactions on the German HGV toll is presented. The results show that the haulage industry only has to deal with marginal impacts since costs are usually passed along to the customer, this is why operational changes do not seem necessary.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors verify the technical and economic feasibility of regular container transport along the Northern Sea Route (NSR) by adopting a model schedule between Shanghai and Hamburg, and analyze the relative costs of various axes in the Asia-Europe transport network.
Abstract: Since the beginning of the 20th century, the principal commercial maritime routes have changed very little. With global warming, the Northern Sea Route (NSR) has opened up as a possible avenue of trade in containerized products between Asia and Europe. This paper verifies the technical and economic feasibility of regular container transport along the NSR. By adopting a model schedule between Shanghai and Hamburg, we are able to analyze the relative costs of various axes in the Asia–Europe transport network, including the NSR. While shipping through the Suez Canal is still by far the least expensive option, the NSR and Trans-Siberian Railway appear to be roughly equivalent second-tier alternatives.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined the relationship between personality traits and the willingness to buy groceries online and found that none of the five personality traits had a significant influence on the attitude toward online grocery shopping.
Abstract: This study examines the relationship between personality traits and the willingness to buy groceries online. Our research is based on research on consumer values regarding online grocery shopping (OGS), and the authors argue that customer values are aggregated states of personality traits. The authors, therefore, propose the predictive power of personality traits toward OGS usage adoption.,For a more thorough evaluation of the matter, the authors conducted an online administered questionnaire resulting in N = 678 valid responses and conducted structural equation modeling using IBM AMOS (Vers. 25).,The authors found that none of the five personality traits had a significant influence on the attitude toward OGS. However, subjective norm had strong influence on attitude, and both subjective norm and attitude were solid predictors of purchase intention for groceries online. Unsurprisingly, the attitude toward OGS was higher for consumer groups with prior experience. The results indicate a high relevance of peer groups in the decision-making process of buying groceries online and the crucial importance of the initial purchase.,Practitioners, therefore, may resort to marketing the strategies to peer groups and initial purchasing behavior and address the level of experience with the usage of OGS, as well as situational aspects. This may be facilitated by precisely targeted online marketing activities and marketing service strategy adaptations.,This is the first study to examine the influence of personality traits toward the willingness to conduct OGS with an emphasis on the lower overall adoption within Germany. The authors furthermore validate the predictive power of the theory of planned behavior (TPB) construct for the economically attractive market segment of OGS by adapting and enhancing the scope of previous research.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors conducted a review of recent literature, reports of international institutions and consulting firms, conference presentations, materials provided by companies, professional business movies and other Internet sources.
Abstract: Background: Challenges in today’s business environment require from logistics and supply chains managers continuous searching for innovative methods in business processes management, oriented to the simultaneous achievement of the Triple Bottom Line effects, namely economic, social and environmental. As a result, the concept of sharing economy is nowadays gaining rising significance among business practices. It has positive impact on building and development of collaborative relations between business partners in value chains as well as between potential market competitors. Sharing economy in logistics and supply chain management determines the requirement to manage companies’ potential and relations between them in a different way. Materials and results: The paper is based on a desk research. The authors conducted a review of recent literature, reports of international institutions and consulting firms, conference presentations, materials provided by companies, professional business movies and other Internet sources. As a result of the materials analysis, different best practices in sharing were described and success factors for their development in logistics and supply chain management were indicated. Conclusions: The development of sharing practices is one of the most important aims of the managers responsible for business processes management in supply chains, especially for logistics processes. The presented sharing practices highlight different implementation possibilities and their significant influence on business activities in various aspects. Despite the variety, sharing practices have common characteristics, which could be indicated as their operational and strategic success factors. They enable the authors to present practical recommendations addressed to logistics and supply

TL;DR: In this article, the authors identify and prioritise competencies of Indonesian third-party logistics managers from the perspective of multinational corporations (MNCs) and local firms, underlined by the theory of action and job performance (competency model).
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to identify and prioritise competencies of Indonesian third-party logistics (3PL) managers from the perspective of multinational corporations (MNCs) and local firms.,Underlined by the theory of action and job performance (competency model), the study proposes a framework that consists of management, logistics, business and information and communication technology competency categories, with 15 competencies. Data are collected from five MNCs and five local 3PL firms operating in Indonesia. The analytic hierarchy process method is used to calculate the priority weights and to prioritise the competencies.,Results indicate that both the local and MNC 3PL providers emphasise logistics as the “most important” competency category. In the “moderately important” competency group, MNCs prioritise competencies in the management competency category while local firms prioritise competencies in the business competency category.,Results obtained in this study focus on 3PL firms in Indonesian businesses, which may not be applicable to other nations and other industries.,3PL firms, industry peak bodies (e.g. Indonesian Logistics Association) and education providers can benefit from incorporating the findings of this study in developing curricula for higher education and training programmes for certification designed to improve managerial competencies.,By including the perceptions of the MNCs and local 3PL providers, this study advances the literature on 3PL managerial competencies by extending such knowledge to the global environment.
