Instead of company-to-company competition, today’s businesses are in an era of supply chain-to-supply chain competition. Supply chain and operations management are increasingly global, and China has become the world manufacturing centre. In recent years, both business practices and theoretical research on supply chain and operations management in China have been booming. For this reason, we are organizing this special issue to explore the latest theories and applications of supply chain management and operations management in China. The purpose of the issue is twofold: on one hand, we attempt to introduce theoretical work related to supply chain and operations management in China; on the other, we aim to investigate supply chain and operations management business practices in different Chinese industries (e.g., food, electronics, textile, etc).
In this special issue, we welcome theoretical, empirical, and case studies that are within the scope of this issue. The issue will include invited papers and papers submitted directly as per instruction below.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Supply chain strategy
- Supply chain risk management
- Revenue management
- Supply chain quality management
- Supply chain technology management
- Supply chain sustainability
- Applications of supply chain and operations management
