Abstract

Corporate landscape has witnessed greater changes in the past few years because of series of Global Financial Crisis (GFC). To remain responsive and competitive to an ever-changing environment and to minimize the impact of external threats, logistics service providers (LSPs) are under heavy pressure to provide sustainable logistics services. Innovation is becoming a key strategy for LSPs to survive and also to thrive in the intense competition. This research work is aimed to examine the innovation processes and its related mechanism of LSPs who are existing in the Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) region. By investigating the critical drivers that stimulates LSPs for innovation, growth and sustainability, the research develops various industry propositions in order to draw further managerial implications
