This thesis aims to develop the supply chain collaboration in the management of fresh Nam Dok Mai mangoes for exports to Japan. To accomplish the research aim, three main objectives are addressed; 1) to provide an overview of existing supply chain of Nam Dok Mai mangoes in Thailand and to identify strengths and weakness in the supply chain; 2) to analyse supply chain collaboration between growers and exporters in the production of mangoes for export to Japan; and 3) to provide recommendations to the government and related agencies on sufficient supply chain management for fresh mango exports. Following a theoretical review, the study employs a conceptual framework for the study of collaborative supply chain that differs from the traditional concepts used in the manufacturing industries literature. The thesis framework presents concepts of supply chain collaboration used for an agro-food industry focusing on the perishable products.
