Abstract [sv]

Vårt moderna samhälle är idag beroende av dagliga transporter som både är en stor kostnad för producerande företag och dessutom har en stor miljöpåverkan. Främst eftersom klimatfrågan idag debatteras flitigt men också för att det finns stora incitament för företagen att minska sina transportkostnader kommer vi, med största sannolikhet att se stora effektiviseringar av denna bransch inom en snar framtid. I detta arbete behandlas därför i vilken utsträckning två välkända teorier, Lean och Supply Chain Management, kan användas för att optimera transporterna främst vad gäller kostnad och miljöpåverkan. Efter att ha analyserat ett flertal rapporter som behandlat dagens transporter, transporttyper av olika slag och pågående miljöregleringar samt intervjuer med två svenska industribolag har vi kommit fram till att dessa två teorier inte lämpar sig i alla situationer. Lönsamheten i användandet av dessa två teorier beror på vilken teknisk grad företagets produkter har samt hur stor företagens produktion är. I framtiden tror vi dock att implementering av dessa teorier kommer öka men då i form av samarbeten flera företag emellan på grund av ökade kostnader i och med kommande miljöregleringar.

Abstract [en]

Our modern society is currently dependent on daily transportation that is both a major cost for manufacturing companies and that also have a big impact on our environment. Mainly because the climate today is heavily debated but also because there are great incentives for companies to reduce their transport costs, we will, in all likelihood, see major rationalization of this industry in the near future. This work therefore addresses the extent to which two well-known theories, Lean and Supply Chain Management, can be used to optimize transport primarily in terms of cost and environmental impact. After analyzing several reports dealt with today's transport, transportation of different kinds and ongoing environmental regulations and interviews with two Swedish industrial companies, we have concluded that these two theories are not suitable in all situations. Profitability in the use of these two theories depends on the technical level the company's products, and how big the company's production is. In the future, we believe that implementation of these theories will increase but then in form of collaboration between several companies due to increased transportation costs and future environmental regulations.
