RISK MITIGATION ON TUNA SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT: A PREVENTIVE COLLABORATIVE ACTION
There has been growing research on risks mitigation on supply chain. However, to date, research investigating about risks mitigation on supply chain especially on supplier relationship management based on relational view is limited. Therefore, to fill this gap, this study aims to describe the risks, analyse them, and then formulate the risks mitigation through a relational view approach among the actors of the tuna supplier relationship management in East Java of Indonesia. The respondents of this study were actors, i.e.: the manager of agro-industry, fishermen, middlemen, academician, and government officers of the fishery department. The data were analysed through the integration of the Interpretive Structural Model (ISM)-House of Risk (HOR)-Analytical Network Process (ANP). The findings showed that there were some risk groups that fall to the category of driver power, such as bad weather, fish migration season, and the shortage of fish caught. The high-risk agents were the use of instinct in forecasting the weather and fish seasons, the lack of post-fishing cooling facilities, the use of instinct in determining fishing grounds, and the imbalance of the trading system. The priority of the recommended risk prevention actions from this study are sharing substantial knowledge about technology, investing in partner fishing gear, sharing substantial knowledge about innovation, making agreements with partners, and maintaining intensive interactions with partners. Stakeholders in the supply chain, i.e: the manufacturer, middlemen, fishermen need to collaborate in managing the risks to improve the competitiveness of the product.
