In modern business, most firms are confronted with the need to manage increasingly supply chain activities with the trading partners. Organizational competences, such as relational competence and Information Technology (IT) competence, have been recognized as critical factors to promote supply chain collaboration for obtaining supply chain competitive advantage. In this paper, we intend to extend the stream of research in Supply Chain Management (SCM) by systematically identifying the antecedents and consequences of information sharing and supply chain collaboration between supply chain partners. We empirically tested the research model using data collected from senior managers of 122 manufacturing firms in South Korea. This study found that relational competence and IT competence in supply chain were positively related to information sharing and supply chain collaboration, and information sharing was not directly related to supply chain performance, but indirectly related to supply chain performance through supply chain collaboration. Results suggest that supply chain collaboration has a greater effect on supply chain performance than information sharing
