The resource wastage in supply chains may be reduced by proper supply chain integration (SCI). SCI may be able to provide the additional means in assuring economic growth while protecting the environment. The hauliers provide the primary linkage between shippers and consignees and logistics service providers in the inland container supply chain. This empirical investigation aims to ascertain the supply environment factors and information system which affect SCI and whether SCI affect operational and environmental performance. Data collected from 110 haulier companies were analysed using partial least squares, structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) methodology. Supply environment which represents transaction attributes affects SCI which in turn positively affects operational and environmental performance. Information system reduces information asymmetry between transacting organizations and by this, moderate the effect of supply environment on SCI. Results provide evidence that SCI is dependent on the context of the supply environment. Opportunistic behavior due to information asymmetry could also be curtailed by proper information system. Therefore, practitioners and stakeholders need to align SCI to the context of supply environment to reap the maximum benefit of SCI. Concurrently, opportunistic behavior needs to be curtailed in supply chain to improve operational and environmental performance.
