The study used 153 firms’ data to test hypothesis. The study adopted simultaneous regression statistical method, while the findings show that advanced information technology plays an important role in supply chain improvement through greater-level of information sharing with supply chain partners, reducing the discrepancies and errors on different levels such as forecasting and scheduling. On the other hand, green transportation and vehicles reduce the supply chain cost and improve environmental performance with building strong competitive advantage through more usage of renewable energy, greater level of customer satisfaction and trust, positive image and reputation.
