(220) questionnaires were distributed to the study sample. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used by AMOS 25, which used path analysis to test the study hypotheses. The results of the study showed that there is a positive relationship between integration with the consumer and strategic performance, There is also a positive relationship between integration with the consumer, integration with the supplier, and strategic vigilance competitive vigilance, commercial vigilance). There was a positive relationship between integration with the supplier and technological vigilance. The study also found a relationship between strategic vigilance (competitiveness, commercial) with strategic performance. While Strategic vigilance partially mediates the relationship between supply chain integration and strategic performance. The theoretical contributions of the study were to test those three theories together. Finally, the study paves the way for further research that will develop the overall performance of organizations through supply chains.
