Transport collaboration has emerged as a growing trend that creates opportunities and competitive advantages for supply chain partners by eliminating inefficiencies and thus reducing costs. As a result, it allows the more efficient utilization of available resources and mitigates greenhouse gas emissions. Ensuring a strategic alignment among different partners is necessary to sustain a long-term collaboration with respect to transport and logistics activities. This chapter studies strategic alignment within the context of supply chain partners. The 37 key criteria from the technical, risk, financial, organizational, and operational categories for the formation and maintenance of a strategic alignment for collaboration are identified by utilizing a hybrid Delphi-AHP. This methodology utilized the expertise of transport experts from different countries. Establishing such collaborative initiatives from raw materials procurement to finished products distribution throughout supply chain is important for creating an efficient and environmentally/socially sustainable transport strategy.
