Abstract [en]

To take advantage of all buildable ground in city and exploit already existing infrastructure for a more efficient society high demands are therefore placed on logistics around large construction projects. Travel center in Västerås will be raised in the same place as existing buildning, while the business will be operational during the construction and the goal with the project work is to identify and present logistic solutions and evaluate, compare and adapt these to new travel center in Västerås. What is being investigated among other things is, ”What is the problem with construction traffic and logistics in large infrastructure projects in urban areas?”. In order to find information and answers of questions a literature study, case study, study visits and interviews are used. Logistics is the strategy that involves planning, development, coordination, organization and control of material flows from supplier. Construction logistics differ considerably from traditional logistics in, for example, the manufacturing industry, since each project is unique. Among other things, consideration must be given to environmental impacts such as noise environmental impact and sustainability, but also transport distances and social aspects. Examples of logistic strategies include supply chain management, lean production, just in time, construction logistic centers, Vendor-controlled inventory. This study focuses primarily on the problems that arise in urban areas and how deliveries of building materials are handled. Work within the railroads track area also entails challenges and special rules. The planning of new construction of the travel center in Västerås is divided into seven different stages at the time of writing, where the railway acts as a barrier between these. The construction project manager for the project has experience from previous projects in the urban area and believes that solutions must be adapted to projects. It is seldom easy to use the same solution in another location without modifying it according to the project's conditions. Building logistics implicates great complexity as many players are involved. The problem around construction traffic and logistics in large infrastructure projects is that is has negativ impact on the enviroment and it disrupts the trafic. Project ”Slussen” in Stockholm used a logistics center and from there used the method Just In Time to the workplace with materials that would be used within three days. A material storage in another location is a better alternative than a material storage on site and a solution for logistics management for the travel center is to use logistics center in the harbour and Mälarhamnar can act as third party logistics partner in the project.
