Abstract [en]

Freight transportation changes in the region of Stockholm lead municipalities to the need of

finding ways to maintain and empower their current logistics role in the area. These changes

are the operation of the future freight port in Norvik near Nynäshamn, the expansion of

Stockholm leading to new freight transportation networks, and the extension of the double

track line southern to Västerhaninge station. Haninge municipality is willing to keep the

interest of existing companies in its land alive and perhaps increase its’ attractiveness by

constructing an extension of the terminal in Jordbro.

But before proceeding to that step, the municipality wants to investigate whether companies

are aware of these changes and furthermore if they have plans for changing their current

goods transportation patterns. It is also interested in finding out the factors that companies

consider as the most important when they take decisions about their goods transportation plan.

That way the municipality knows what is important for companies and can adjust the supply

of infrastructure to their demands.

The main method used for data collection is designing and conducting a questionnaire and for

data analysis it is multi-criteria analysis (MCA). The questionnaire also includes questions

about the nature of the company and the current ways of goods transportation. Although the

number of responders is quite low, some general conclusions could be made. There are two

alternatives competing and multi-criteria analysis leads to the selection of the most suitable

one. There are several limitations and assumptions which can be overcome by further future
