Abstract

This paper aims to assess the role of flexibility in satisfying competitive opportunities while accommodating supply chain uncertainties. In this way we may then determine the role of different transport flexibility types in delivering strategic mass customisation outcomes. A transport flexibility construct is explored via action-based research in a steel industry logistics triad. The findings highlight efficiencies in the logistics operations and are used as a catalyst to instigate supply chain re-engineering. The changes implemented lead to substantive improvements in supply chain performance.
