Abstract

This research is an empirical assessment of wood products supply chain in a developing economy using Bodija wood market in Ibadan, Nigeria as case study. The study examined the nature of supply chain collaboration employed by the operators to achieve their business objectives and the roles played by extant government rules guiding SC of wood products. The study is based on a randomly selected set of 147 constituents of the SC. Two hypotheses were tested in the study, evidence from the study shows that supply chain relationship is positively influenced by reduction in operational costs and higher levels of customer's relationship. Further analysis shows that extant governmental policies have significant influence on supply chain performance (SCP) .Policies on taxation, and forest management techniques have strong influence on achievement of benefits of the chain. The paper suggests tangible business and policy measures for the development of wood products SC in Nigeria. Keywords: supply chain; SC; supply chain relationship; SCR; wood products; developing economy, government policies. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Ajayi, A.P.
