Abstract:This study identifies several taxonomies of green shipping capability and examines their relationships with performance from the perspective of a liner shipping company. Using factor analysis, three green shipping capability dimensions were identified: the green ship dimension, green employee dimension, and green supplier dimension. Cluster analysis was subsequently used to assign respondents into three groups, namely, the strategic green shipping practice group, the undeveloped green shipping practice group, and the capable green shipping practice group, on the basis of their factor scores for three green shipping capability dimensions. The results indicate that the strategic green shipping practice firms had a better firm performance index in relation to image improvement, sales and customer satisfaction than the undeveloped green shipping practice firms. Thus, the findings suggest that top managers should constantly seek to enhance and refine their firms, three green shipping capability factors in relation to those of their competitors in order to acquire and maintain long-term superior performance.
