Abstract

This research investigates the intricate relationship between supply chain management (SCM) practices and firm profitability, utilizing a diverse sample of 50 companies across various industries. Descriptive analysis reveals an average total asset value of $150 million and profit margins ranging from 5% to 15%, with an average of 10%. Bivariate correlations establish significant positive relationships between key SCM practices (Inventory Management, Supplier Relationship Management, Demand Forecasting, and Logistics and Distribution) and firm profitability. Multiple regression analysis further elucidates these associations, collectively explaining 65% of the variance in profitability. Each SCM practice demonstrates a positive impact, emphasizing their multifaceted contribution. These findings contribute to the literature on SCM and organizational performance, offering practical insights for enhancing supply chain processes and overall profitability. Acknowledging limitations, this study provides a robust foundation for future research in the dynamic field of supply chain management.
Keywords: Qualitative Analysis Firm Profitability, Supply Chain management Practices.
