AbstractSeveral studies have identified different types of supply chain integration (SCI). However, no study has developed the taxonomy of SCI. This study aims to define and measure SCI. Based on three main types of SCI, a taxonomy is developed and the impact of SCI on supply chain (SC) performance and financial performance of the firm within the SC is investigated. We also examined the differences in competitive hostility, trust and relationship commitment for companies with different types of integration. The results show that the companies with a full integration SC (high degree of integration with the supplier, customer and internal integration) achieve the best company performance, the best SC performance and have the highest degree of trust and relationship commitment with their partners. Companies with a low integration SC (all three types of integration are low) achieve the worst company and SC performance and have the lowest degree of trust and relationship commitment with their partners. It is also found that competitive hostility is one of the important drivers of SCI. Companies facing higher level of competitive hostility are more likely to have a higher level of SCI.
