Abstract: This study focuses on the vertical coordination methods identified in the export chain of fresh Malian mango. In fact, our analyzes focused on the identification, description and characterization of vertical coordination methods in the Malian fresh mango export sector. In addition, recommendations were made to the actors of the sector in terms of vertical coordination that reduces quality problems (loss reduction) and promotes a better sharing of benefits. An analytical framework on the theory of transaction costs was favored to understand the existence or coexistence of the different modes of vertical coordination identified in the sector. Subsequently, an analysis grid on the characteristics of vertical coordination modes was developed from Williamson (1991); Masten and Soussier (2000); Peterson & al. (2001); OECD (2007) and Geyskens & al. (2006) to analyze the vertical coordination modes identified in this study. In addition, investigations were carried out in the various production basins of mango in Mali in order to meet the actors targeted by this research (producer, trackers and exporters) in order to collect the information necessary to meet our objectives of research, the chosen approach is of a qualitative type that combines the use of a questionnaire and interview guides. Based on our analyzes, four modes of vertical coordination have been identified in the Malian fresh mango export chain, namely: (i) the spot market, (ii) the written (formal) contract ( iii) the relational contract (verbal or informal) and (iv) vertical integration. These vertical coordination modes are different according to the characteristics elaborated in our analysis grid, as we have seen in the analysis of data collected in the field. Keywords: Vertical coordination, relationship contract, written contract, vertical integration, transaction cost, sector, specific asset.
