Abstract: Over the recent years, blockchain, a digitalization phenomenon, has leveraged its superior features to remodel the relationships of logistics partners. This cutting-edge technology has brought a faster, more transparent, and cost-effective logistics industry. This study, therefore, aims to investigate the behavioral intention to use the blockchain of individuals who work in logistics companies in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), Viet Nam, through the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and its extended factors. Accordingly, non-probability sampling with convenience sampling has been chosen. A questionnaire was used to collect data from logistics workers before exploring and clarifying factors affecting the users’ intention, namely performance expectancy (PE), effort expectancy (EE), social influence (SI), and facilitating conditions (FC). In addition, experience (EXP) was also expected to influence the relationships. Therefore, a multi-analytical hybrid structural equation modeling-artificial neural network (SEM-ANN) approach was used to evaluate the gathered data empirically. The expert panel examined the established questionnaire through face validity and content validity to ensure the validity and reliability of the survey instrument. The findings revealed the different positive impacts of factors on the intention to use blockchain. While the result of the PLS-SEM technique is a descending order impact of PE, FC, EE, SI, and EXP was found that have no meaningful effect on the relationships, the ANN approach produces a surprising conclusion when SI ranks first in the magnitude of influence.
