Purpose Knowledge Sharing Behaviour (KSB) is the most important part of knowledge management, which has an influence in an organisation. Knowledge is a critical organisational resource that will provide a sustainable competitive advantage in a dynamic and competitive economy so that knowledge sharing behaviour between individuals has become one of the most important elements of effective knowledge processes. The main focus in this study is to examine and analyse antecedents of knowledge sharing behaviour. Methods This study uses a cross-sectional design which is used to collect the data used which is then carried out by mediation analysis. Structural Equation Modelling is used to test the mediation effect based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). Findings The results show a positive and significant relationship between attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioural control and behavioural intentions. So, there is the impact of full mediation of behavioural intentions between attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioural control and knowledge sharing behaviour. It can be concluded that this states that behavioural intentions can fully process planned behaviour predictions. Research limitations / implications The sample size is limited, in marine, shipping and other maritime industry companies in Java. This study limited supervisor behavioural preferences. This study is a one-time cross-section focusing on a one-off perception. Practical implications The supervisor at the Company in the field of sea transportation has a heavy duty responsibility in carrying the trust that has been given and synergises well between the employees below and the manager.
