    Abstract :

    Third Party Logistics (3PL) is adopted by manufacturing organizations to improve their overall business performance. In recent years Indian manufacturing firms have shown faster rate of 3PL practice adoption. This paper identifies the variables that are critical to 3Pl adoption. The variables are grouped as objectives and drivers, organizational obstacles and benefits of adoption. The study establishes contextual relationship between the variables. This study implements an interpretive structural modeling approach to analyze the mutual relationship between variables. To understand the relative influence of the variable, they are classified into four categories namely autonomous, dependent, linkage and driver. The variables which are most influenced by other variables (dependent variables) and those variables which greatly influence other variables (driver variables) are found with the help of ISM. The aim of this paper is to understand these interrelationships and interdependence and develop a framework. Such a generic framework would provide an insight of important issues while adopting 3PL practices in the Indian context
