The study used quantitative method research. The sample was 300 Thailand road transportation service providers, arisen from stratified sampling. The instruments used in the research were questionnaires. The statistics used for quantitative data analysis were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, confirmative factor analysis and structural equation modeling. The findings revealed that the levels of STHD, GSCM and SSCP were at a high level. In addition, STHD comprised regulatory, internal and market-based stakeholders, GSCM consisted of internal environmental management, green purchasing, cooperation with customers and eco-design, SSCP contained economic, social and environmental performances. For practical recommendation, such findings can be a guideline for road transportation service providers to improve their sustainable supply chain performance. Regulators should design strictly environmental rules, while customers should pay attention to company’s environmental practices. Entrepreneurs, moreover, should inspect on environmental management within the frim. In addition, government agencies can apply the results of research to formulate policies for helping entrepreneurs. For theoretical recommendation, academicians and interested persons can bring the research results to conduct further research on other potential industries. Likewise, the roles of other dynamics should be considered since they are essential factors in logistics and supply chain management.
