Abstract [en]

The purpose with this thesis is to gain a better understanding of how Extranets are used in supply chain management. This thesis study an Extranet’s use in the supply chain, its advantages and its disadvantages. Three different companies are investigated: Tetra Pak Norway, Tine Mejerier and Nen-Produkter: all related to the same Extranet. Since Extranet is a rather new phenomenon, especially in Europe, this thesis is based on both traditional supply chain management and more recent literature. It seems as if this Extranet differs to some extent from what the literature suggest, probably partly because of the already established relationship between the trading partners. Tetra Pak, that is the supplier of this Extranet, seem to some degree see different things in the system than their clients. The Extranet discussed seems, however, to be successful since many positive views were brought to surface, but relatively few negative aspects. This thesis is a qualitative research based on case studies and interviews.
