Abstract

Despite calls for more theoretical and strategically oriented work in logistics, the resource-based theory of the firm (RBT), and the related capabilities approach - which represent a dominant stream of research in strategic management over the last decade - have not been prominent in the logistics literature. Provides a critical review of the large literature on the RBT and suggests areas where it can be applied to strategically-oriented logistics research. Describes the resource-based theory of the firm, its major assumptions, and its implications for strategic actions. Also discusses other areas of research where the RBT have been applied. Illustrates how the RBT represents the underlying theoretical support for one of the central propositions of strategic logistics: that a distinctive logistics capability is a source of sustainable competitive advantage and superior performance. Suggests that strategic logistics research may benefit from combining the RBT with organizational learning theory and evolutionary approaches to competition.
