Logistique et petite entreprise : une étude typologique exploratoire

Abstract : Although logistics development is a trigger of performance in small businesses, the topic has only been scarcely documented in management academic literature. The aim of the paper is to identify different logistics approaches in small businesses, through a survey relying on a sample of 95 small businesses. An exploratory typology highlights three different logistics approaches. The paper investigates whether these logistics approaches are explained by three variables: growth orientation, partnership with clients, IT resources. Growth orientation and logistics approach co-evolve. Partnerships with clients and IT resources explain logistics approaches. The discussion emphasizes the entrepreneur’s vision as a key factor for logistics development.
