Literature provides a number of conceptual frameworks and discussions on performance measurement in supply chains. However, most of these frameworks focus on a single link of a supply chain. Furthermore, there is a lack of empirical analysis and case studies on performance metrics and measurements in a supply chain context. This article provides the results of an empirical study into performance measurement in the automotive spare parts supply chain, with a focus on the dependent channel. We have applied a supply chain performance measurement model called the LogistiQual model. We will discuss the types of measures used by companies in the automotive spare parts supply chain and will argue that in the automotive spare parts supply chain performance is, to a certain extent, measured with a supply chain perspective but not completely.
