This study was guided by 4 objectives namely: to evaluate the effect of inbound logistics outsourcing, outbound Logistics, Logistics Outsourcing and third Party Logistics Outsourcing on performance of state corporations in Kenya. Based on this, the current study is anchored on transaction cost economics theory, resource based view, SCOR model and the Principal Agent theory. To satisfy the objectives, descriptive research design was adopted. The study population was 152 state corporations in Kenya. A total of 64 state corporations were randomly sampled. Primary data was collected from the Head of procurement and operations managers of state corporations using structured questionnaire.
