The purpose of this study is to explore the role of supply chain capabilities on firm performance in different vulnerability levels. The data of this study were gathered from 268 manufacturing firms in the UK and analysed using structural equation modelling. The findings indicate that some of supply chain capabilities have no effect on firm performance when the vulnerability is low but they have a great influence when the vulnerability is high and vice versa. The study is the first to deliver empirical insights about the influence of supply chain capabilities on firm performance in both high and low vulnerability.
