Abstract: Due to their growing global and complex nature, supply chains are increasingly vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters that disrupt the flow of goods. Today, recovering from supply chain disruptions represents a major challenge for supply chain professionals. In research, most recovery methods suggested are based on redundancy and flexibility. In practice, a different approach gains momentum: companies recover by collaborating with their supply chain partners, especially by temporarily sharing resources. Based on the relational view theory, this paper uses multiple case studies and expert interview to develop a framework which describes the factors promoting collaborative resource sharing as well as the effect on supply chain resilience.
