This study investigates perceived satisfaction and the relative word of mouth in the Italian cold food supply chain, defined as the degree to which a logistics customer is satisfied with a third-party logistics provider’s overall performance in the outsourcing relationship analyzing the order placement and distribution process as a baseline of the model. Moreover we added in our model returns management and customer value anticipation. We provided relevant insights for scholars and managers focalizing in a specific and less explored business context using the logistics service quality model.
