Abstract

This research examines theoretical links between factors thought to influence capability development and their effects on performance using data from a third party logistics (3PL) environment. The research extends previous work that has demonstrated links between integration capabilities and performance, and between learning processes and performance, by providing an overarching theoretical framework. Structural equation modeling was used to test direct and indirect 3PL relationships between learning processes, the absorptive capacity of employees, integration capabilities and performance. The results of the research are discussed within the theoretical framework. Brief suggestions of the practical implications of the research are also presented.
