BATON-CHANGING ON EGGSHELLS – TRANSFERRING SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIPS WHEN MOVING PRODUCTION
NTNU, Trondheim.
2014 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Production transfers are a result of outsourcing and offshoring decisions. Though, because of

the strategic focus of the outsourcing literature have not the operational issues of how

relationship development between sender, receiver and raw material been fully depicted. The

purpose of the present paper is to explore relationship development connected to transfer of

raw material supplies responsibility during transfer of production. To fulfil the purpose, four

different production transfers were studied: three from Sweden to China, Romania and

Hungary respectively and one transfer from Holland to Sweden. We can see that the

dependence and power shifts gradually between the sender and the receiver and the

relationship between them sets the arena for what relationship is developed between the

receiver and the raw material suppliers. Furthermore, short social distances can over bridge

cultural and technological distances to some extent, because it motivates to take the

relationship into a more developed state.
