Transport and logistics optimization for Delsbo Candle AB (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tredjepartslogistik i Sverige är en allt växande marknad med många aktörer. För företag som vill lägga ut delar av sin logistisk på dessa aktörer är valet av aktör inte alltid självklart. Ett företag som står inför detta val är stearinljustillverkaren Delsbo Candle AB. Detta arbete tar avstamp i Delsbo Candle existerande transportstruktur och presenterar en globalt optimal lösning, ur ett kostnadsperspektiv, utifrån företagets förutsättningar och begränsningar. Den globalt optimala lösningen utgörs av tre tredjepartslogistik aktörer belägna i Stockholm, Norrköping och Jönköping med en minimal transport- och hanteringskostnad på 45 986 kr per månad.

Vidare presenteras en analys av samverkan mellan Delsbo Candle organisationsstruktur och de effekter som outsourcing medför ur ett organisatoriskt perspektiv. Analysen visar bland annat att Delsbo Candle riskerar att utsättas för en fördröjd beslutsprocess och förlust av strategiskt viktig kunskap.

Abstract [en]

The third-party logistics market is rapidly growing in Sweden with actors situated all over the country. Nonetheless are companies that are interested in outsourcing parts of their logistic operation not always certain which actors to choose.

The global optimal solution consists of using three third-party logistics actors situated in Stockholm, Norrköping och Jönköping with a minimal transport and handling cost of 45 986 kr a month.

Furthermore the project explores the concurrence between Delsbo Candle’s organisation structure and the effects of outsourcing from an organisational perspective. The analysis shows that there is a risk that Delsbo Candle will be exposed to delay in decision making and loss of strategically important knowledg
