The aim of this paper is to study the adoption of logistic information systems (LIS) in the automotive supplier industry of Spain and their implications on firm performance. We conducted a survey on more than 200 companies. Using a structural equation model, estimated by the Partial Least Squares (PLS) technique, we find out that the adoption of LIS produces a direct but weak positive outcome on firm performance and a significant impact over logistic performance and flexibility.
