Abstract: Nowadays, the global market and economy have made it difficult for companies to compete solely as individual entities. Many companies have realized the potential for achieving a competitive advantage through effectively coordinating different logistics participants in their supply chains. In the meanwhile, information technology and outsourcing have enabled companies to successfully operate a collaborative supply chain, in which each logistics participant focuses on only a few key strategic activities. In this dissertation, we deal with the logistics coordination issues in two distinct vendorbuyer systems, where the vendor and buyer may represent any two upstream-downstream logistics participants that are independently managed, whether they belong to different companies or simply behave as such. For each vendor-buyer system studied, we investigate how the two parties can cooperate with each other in making decisions to increase both the system and the individual profitability.
