dc.description.abstractThis study was an investigation into the relationship between logistics management and the performance of Small Scale Industries using Hot Loaf Uganda Ltd. Specifically the study examined the relationship between logistics strategic planning, organisation, control and performance of the SME. The study used a cross-sectional study design using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Data was collected from 55 respondents out of a sample size of 63, hence 87.3%. The study found a high positive significant relationship between logistics strategic planning and performance of the SME and it was the strongest predictor of the variance in performance of SSIs. The study found a high positive significant relationship between logistics organisational relationships and performance of the SMEand it was the second strongest predictor of the variance in performance of SSIs. The study found a high positive significant relationship between logistics organisational relationships and performance of the SME and it was the least significant predictor of the variance in performance of SSIs. The study concluded that there is a significant relationship between logistics management dimensions of strategic planning, organisation, control and performance of SSI in Uganda and inadequate logistics strategic planning, organisation and control constrains the performance of SSIs. To enhance performance of SSIs this study recommends that management should strengthen their alliances with suppliers through conducting strategic analysis of the market to identify potential supply chain partners, undertakes to evaluate potential international suppliers; strengthen the structure coordination by establishing of a logistics function structure and optimumstaffing; continuously collect performance data on a weekly basis to feed in the monthly and annual reports to guide taking of corrective actions on the logistics function.en_US
