Abstract [en]

Suppliers and transport providers are key parties in the construction supply chain, and their respective roles when employing third-party logistics (3PL) is investigated. The purpose is to analyze how they are affected by the 3PL solution in terms of their attitudes towards the use of 3PL, the experienced defects from the 3PL solution, and their level of supply chain management (SCM) maturity. This is done by a literature review and an explorative case study at a large construction project employing a 3PL solution. Results show a positive attitude and that they actively address SCM issues, whereas actual effects are inconclusive.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of 3PL providers in large construction projects, and to identify main drivers and barriers, as well as the resulting effects, when implementing SCM by the use of 3PL providers. This is done by the means of a literature review and an explorative case study, the latter being a large hospital construction project. The results show positive performance effects in terms of increased productivity, resources utilization, and delivery performance, but also that there are challenges when it comes to organizational setting, policy adherence and supply chain coordination.
