This study investigates the impact of supply chain resilience and robustness on firm performance and also examines the significance of supply chain risk management (SCRM) in minimizing the consequences of disruptions on supply chain performance in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Data was gathered using convenience sampling technique through a survey from management staff (n=409) working in textile companies operating in Pakistan. Using SPSS software for data analysis, this study proposes a mediation model where risk management practices are proposed as a mediator between supply chain resilience, robustness and firm performance. The findings highlight that supply chain resilience and robustness have positive significant effect on firm performance. The results also revealed that supply chain risk management mediates the relationships between supply chain resilience, robustness and firm performance. The findings show that managers should focus more on improving supply chain risk management operations and prioritize their SC resilience and robustness competencies for better firm performance. Furthermore, this is among the few quantitative studies dealing with supply chain risk management procedures, SC resilience and robustness in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. The research limitations have been identified and suggestions for future research have been provided.
