Logistics outsourcing determinants and performance management: A theoretical model.

R. EL YAMANI, M. MOUTMIHI

Abstract


While the principal objective of outsourcing was to reduce costs, organizations are now using this process to
focus, their financial and managerial resources, on value-creating activities and improving the logistics
performance for the company adopting it.
Based on this observation, the objective of this paper is to wonder about the decision of logistics outsourcing:
what factors explain why a company will choose to outsource its logistics activity rather than maintaining it
internally knowing that other companies show a cautious position compared to the idea of outsourcing? And
what contributions does each company hope to receive in return for the decision to outsource its logistics?

Keywords


Logistics outsourcing; Explanatory factors; Risks; Logistics performance; Theoretical model.
