Abstract

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.
