Abstract Chinese government recently launched one belt one road to reform and speed up the development of Chinese economic in the world. One Belt One Road (OBOR) strategy heavily relied on the traditional logistical trade routes including terrestrial and oceanic Silk Road. Logistics performance may play a vital role for implementing the One Belt One Road plan. Especially, third party logistics providers as supporting members to carry out value-adding supply chain activities in one belt one road. According to literature review, supply chain risk is an issue to obstruct the development of logistics performance. The purpose of this paper is to present a conceptual framework for managing supply chain risks and improving logistics performance under the OBOR initiative in Chinese third party logistics service providers. There are very few studies on risk management in the OBOR initiative. We focus on the innovation, customer response and flexibility in the third-party logistics providers. This would provide a guide for both academics and practitioners to manage supply chain risks and improve logistics performance and enlighten them to pay attention to supply chain risk management in the Chinese third party logistics sector. In addition, this contributes to the supply chain and logistics management in One Belt One Road literature.
