    The objective of this paper is to explore the adoption of ubiquitous supply chain management system (USCM) in different national contexts: the UK and South Korea. In order to achieve this objective, this paper proposes a research model that consists of factors related to organizational, information technology and environmental aspects. Data were collected in the UK and South Korea to conduct a cross-country comparison analysis. The findings indicate that the major differences between the two countries were found in industry type, USCM adoption type and USCM benefits. Many of the organizational, information technology and environment factors are similar across the two nations. Because there has been little empirical research on this subject, the findings provide valuable insights for both academics and practitioners. Further research is required to examine the application of USCM in the various industrial contexts.
