Abstract

The research empirically investigates the relationships among supply chain B2B e-commerce, environmental uncertainty, organizational structure, and time-based delivery performance. The results show that B2B e-commerce enhances time-based delivery performance. The process turbulence component of environmental uncertainty has direct influence on B2B e-commerce implementation and an indirect influence as mediated by the integration dimension of organizational structure. Process turbulence thus indirectly has a positive effect on time-based delivery performance, whereas demand unpredictability has no effect. Integration within the firm associates with B2B e-commerce implementation, while decentralization and formal control are unrelated to B2B e-commerce. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
