Identifying and creating customer loyalty is essential for business success. Understanding the customer loyalty requires understanding value for the customers. The study of customer value is more significant for several researches. However, many factors can affect customer value. This research explores the relationship of product quality, product innovation, customer relationship management, service value, supplier relationship management, and brand image, and their impacts on customer value and customer loyalty in the ride hailing industry in Thailand.

Confirmatory Factory Analysis (CFA) conducted in AMOS revealed the relationship of 6 variables and their impacts on customer value and customer loyalty.
