Abstract

This research investigates collaboration among e-retailers and applies the concept of virtual warehousing within an online inter-organizational framework, using resource sharing and mutual assistance to facilitate selling and to accelerate inventory depletion. An online collaboration mechanism is therefore constructed. According to the experimental results, the constructed mechanism could indeed improve the efficiency of selling products for the participating e-retailers by shortening the average time to stock depletion up to 14%.
