Abstract

In recent years, the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have threatened supply chain management. Blockchain technology has emerged as the resource that is used to mitigate the challenges caused by the COVID -19 pandemic. This study aims to figure out the effects of the performance expectancy (PE), effort expectancy (EE), facilitating condition (FC), and technology readiness (TECHR) on behavioral intention (BI), and examine the mediating role of trust (TR) between the exogenous and endogenous – behavioral intention in implementing blockchain in supply chain management among companies based in Ho Chi Minh city. The researcher combined two models involving the Technology-Organization-Environment framework and the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use Technology theory that could cover most existing perspectives of the business. Data was accumulated from respondents who work in a supply chain firm and will be investigated by using SmartPLS. The finding reveals that performance expectancy and effort expectancy have significant effects on trust and behavioral intention. Hence, the result reflects that the respondents can perceive the performance expectancy and effort expectancy for operating the blockchain technology in supply chain management. Meanwhile, technology readiness and facilitating conditions are indirect predictors which were mediated by trust. The mediating effect of trust was found to be impactful on behavioral intention. This means the behavioral intention mainly operates whether the firms have enough trust in adopting the novel technology. This paper contributes new knowledge to the literature on factors that influence the adoption of blockchain and justifications also are discussed accordingly.
