Abstract [en]

This report is a bachelor thesis project conducted by Isabelle Andersson and Wiktoria Rydin as a part of the education Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Economy and Production Management, at the School of Engineering, Jönköping University. The project is a collaboration with Hörle Wire Group AB, a company that produces round and flat-rolled wire of high-quality and they belong to one of Europe's leading suppliers of wire.

The purpose of the bachelor theses was to review Hörle Wire's transport solutions from their facility in Nitra, Slovakia, to their two main customers in Sweden. Hörle Wire has a problem with gaining profitability regarding these transports. The cost of transporting the goods from Nitra to the customers is so high that the profit margin becomes very low.

The problem was studied through qualitative and quantitative data collection in the form of interviews with staff at Hörle Wire and with their customers. The resulted in a clear picture of the emerging problem, and with the theories and facts studied in the field, proposals could be processed.

Based on this, some suggestions for improvements were made that Hörle Wire could apply in its efforts to affect the transport. Some different proposals have been made, for example completely changing the means of transport, changing the appearance of today's transportation and to establish a warehouse.
