Abstract

The organized retail is a sunrise industry in India. Managing organized non-livestock retailing (NLR): which is the retailing of agricultural and horticultural products, is a big challenge for the retail players. In this paper, the twenty two factors affecting supply chain (SC) performance have been classified into three groups using factor analysis i.e., strategic management, operations management, and environmental dynamics. A confirmatory model is also tested to know the effect of these factors/items on SC decisions. The results indicate that the focus on these factors shall help organizations to diagnose, manage and improve SC performance.
