The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship among supply chain justices (procedural, distributive and interactional), trust and inter-firms supply chain process integration in mainland Pakistan. The study variables have considerable importance in the literature of supply chain management (SCM). The conceptual model comprises four hypotheses. Then hypotheses are tested via an empirical study in which data are collected from 170 manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers of mainstream spectrum industries in Pakistan. We used exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to test the validity and reliability of the measurement model, and structural equation modeling (SEM) to test the hypotheses. The findings delineate that supply chain justices can encourage process integration through developing trust among partners. Moreover, this study reveals interesting implications of supply chain justices, trust and processes integration that is useful to both academicians and practitioners.
