Abstract

Using three process dimensions of integration, we study patterns of supply chain integration, how they are supported, and how they influence the relationship effectiveness. Hypotheses are developed using the Transaction Cost Theory, and tested with data from 171 pharmacies. Knowledge of factors that facilitate integration should help improve pharmacy-wholesaler relationships.
