A common saying is that it is no longer businesses that compete against each other, supply chains compete against each other. However, partners within a supply chain have differing degrees of power. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate this issue and its consequences.

Topics to be considered are:

  • Power distribution along the supply chain
  • Incentives of players in a supply chain
  • How to best distribute benefits among the players in a supply chain
