Analysis of transportation logistics : A study for FläktGroup Sweden AB (English)
Abstract [en]

An important part in the area of logistics, is transportation logistics. In order to be a competitive and profitable industrial company, it requires to have a good strategy over the transportation logistics as this can be crucial of getting the products available in a cost-effective way

The thesis work has been carried out at FläktGroup Sweden AB in Jönköping, Sweden which is a company that produces ventilation systems and fans. FläktGroup suspects that the present transportation logistics is not cost-effective and therefore wants to investigate whether there are improvement opportunities in this area.

The study aims to contribute with knowledge and development where the current situation is analyzed with the aim of finding cost-effective action proposals for FläktGroup Sweden AB. In order to achieve this goal, three questions were asked:

  1. How does the current transportation logistics look like from a cost perspective?
  2. What improvement opportunities are there regarding the transportation logistics regarding the current situation?
  3. What results can the improvement opportunities generate?

The study resulted in two action proposals that generated savings for FläktGroup:

  • Action proposal 1 à reduced transportation costs with 35 % compared to the current situation.
  • Action proposal 2 à reduced transportation costs with 9 % and a more predictable inflow of goods from the five most frequent suppliers compared to the current situation.

The later part of the thesis contains a discussion where the action proposals are discussed as well as the study's validity and reliability. The thesis is then concluded with a conclusion and further recommendations for academic writing but also for FläktGroup Sweden AB.
