The main objective of the study was to test the relationship between the uncertainty of supply chain, employee commitment and product quality with the mediating role of supply chain integration. The uniqueness of the study is that it focused on the mediating role of supply chain integration in the automobile sector of United Arab Emirates (UAE). This research is quantitative in nature. For the analysis, structural equation modelling is used. The population of the present research is the employees working in the automobile sector of UAE. A Likert scale questionnaire was used to support this study. The questionnaire was distributed among 481 respondents by using simple random sampling. The usable response rate was 66.66%. The findings of the study confirmed the direct relationship between supply chain integration, product quality, employee commitment and environmental uncertainty. This study fills the gap of limited studies regarding supply chain integration in the UAE automobile sector. The findings of the study are also helpful for policymakers in developing automobile strategies. © 2022 Growing Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
