THE IMPACT OF GOVERNMENT POLICIES ON THE INTEGRATION OF MANUFACTURING AND LOGISTICS INDUSTRIES: BASED ON THE MEDIATING ROLE OF SUPPLY CHAIN COOPERATION EFFICIENCY AND INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORT IN GUANGXI, CHINA
The deep integration and development of manufacturing and logistics industries is an urgent issue facing China's current economic development. This article is based on a literature review of four variables: government policies, the integration of manufacturing and logistics industries, supply chain cooperation efficiency, and infrastructure support. Six hypotheses about the relationship between the four variables are proposed, including four direct effect hypotheses and two intermediary effect hypotheses. The article constructs a model with government policies as independent variables and supply chain cooperation efficiency and infrastructure support as intermediary variables, A conceptual model with the integration of manufacturing and logistics industries as the dependent variable. Based on 388 sample data from Guangxi, China, a structural equation model was constructed using partial least squares method for confirmatory factor analysis. The results showed that the hypotheses of four direct effects and two mediating effects were supported. These studies confirm that government policies have a significant positive impact on the efficiency of supply chain cooperation and infrastructure support. Both supply chain cooperation efficiency and infrastructure support have a significant positive impact on the integration of Guangxi's manufacturing and logistics industries. At the same time, both supply chain cooperation efficiency and infrastructure support play a significant mediating role in the impact of government policies on the integration of Guangxi's manufacturing and logistics industries.
