description: Based on the underlying Resource-Based View (RBV) perspective, the main objective of this study is to empirically examine the relationship of logistics capability and logistics performance, and the moderating effect of firm size on this relationship. This study adopted a cross-sectional design and collected quantitative data from a total of 81 logistic service providers (LSP) registered with the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) Directory of Malaysian Industries 2013, from three states (i.e., Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang) in Peninsular Malaysia. This study used the Pearson correlation and the moderated multiple regression (MMR) to test if the logistics capability has a significant positive effect on firm performance and the moderating effect of firm size on the relationship between logistics capability and firm performance. Findings of this study revealed that logistics capability has a significant positive relationship with logistics performance. Logistics service capabilities and flexible capabilities delivered by firms are vital for liner shipping services. Moreover, this relationship is significantly affected by firm size, which suggests that, in comparison, the inclusion of firm size (large vs. medium/small LSPs) in the logistics capability – logistics performance relationship has a significant moderating effect in changing the degree (volume) of performance. The moderating effect of firm size is shown to be capable of changing the nature of relationship and explains the conditions in which capability causes LSPs to perform better. The presence of a significant moderating effect of firm size (large and medium/small LSP firms) exceeded the linear relationship between logistics capability and logistics performance. The study has bridged the literature gaps in such a way that it offers empirical evidence on the moderating effect of firm size on the relationship between logistics capability and logistics performance using a Malaysian sample. In order to foster the economic development through effective logistics services, the logistics services development policies and programs should therefore focus on providing a supportive platform for logistics service providers to improve their capacities, which would ultimately lead to better performance and the sustainability of the logistics service providers in Malaysia.
