Simulation Analysis of Horizontal Collaboration Mechanisms in Distribution Logistics.
Importance of collaboration in logistics has been increasing in recent times in a quest for improving operational efficiency. Vertical, horizontal, and lateral collaboration are common collaborative initiatives. Compared to vertical and lateral collaboration studies, extant literature lacks published work on horizontal collaboration. Few scholars have shown that horizontal collaboration offers organizations with an opportunity to reduce costs, improve logistics service quality and reduce environmental impact, however, actual implementations are limited due to complexities involved in finding right partner(s) to form a coalition, lack of gain sharing mechanism and trust, reluctance to share sensitive information, and flexibility to enter and leave the coalition. Therefore, the goal of this research is to develop a simulation model to analyze how evolution of trust facilitates horizontal collaboration through the conceptual lens of transaction cost economics. Significance of this research is to contribute towards understanding of dynamics of trust throughout the lifetime of collaboration. Research findings will help supply chain practitioners to develop and maintain trustworthy relationships in an collaborative environment.
