Abstract: The purpose of this research is to examine the relationship among supply effort management, logistics capabilities, and supply chain management strategies on firm performance. A concept model was developed and subsequently five hypotheses were formulated. In order to empirically investigate the concept model, a nationwide survey of supply chain professionals within manufacturing firms was undertaken in India and data were collected. The concept model was tested using structural equation modeling. From the results of SEM analysis, it is found that SCM strategy is positively influenced by supply effort management and logistics capabilities. The overall firm performance is positively impacted by supply effort management, logistics capabilities, and SCM strategy. This study presents valid and reliable metrics that academicians as well as practitioners can use in measuring the supply effort management, logistics capabilities, SCM strategy, and firm performance. The investigated SEM model provides supply chain managers with a useful tool for evaluating and improving efficiency of their current managerial practices.
