ABSTRACT

In this paper, I propose that what factors affect logistics companies' adoption of blockchain technology and to analyze the effects of blockchain technology on logistics performance. The variables influencing the adoption of blockchain technology were presented based on the TOE frame. Expected profit, organizational readiness, technology compatibility, and competitive pressure were suggested as factors to adopt blockchain technology. Also, as a blockchain technology, smart contracts and information transparency were presented. Logistics performance suggested agility and alignment. A survey was conducted with Korean logistics companies. Looking at the results of analyzing the collected data, it was found that expected profit and technology compatibility have a positive effect on this blockchain technology (smart contract, information transparency). Organizational readiness was found to have a positive effect on information transparency. Blockchain technology was found to have a positive effect on logistics performance.
