Abstract: The paper at hand takes the widely used Lotka-Volterra model from biology and transfers it to the supply chain context. The model is used to analyse whether supply chain partners can benefit from symbiotic mutualism. Results show that in certain situations, both mutualism partners disappear from the marketplace, while in other situations, one of the partners survives while the other dies. The model furthermore shows that symbiotic mutualism exists in which both supply chain partners can benefit from the collaboration and a stable coexistence can be reached.
