Identifiering och utvärdering av potentialer inom Green Cargo ABs intermodala konfektionslogistik (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This Master Thesis has been carried out at Green Cargo AB in Stockholm, and was initiated by Green Cargo in order to gain knowledge about potentials in the existing logistics system for ready made clothing.

To be able to identify and analyse potentials within the ready made clothing logistic of Green Cargo, a mapping of the logistic network was accomplished. The mapping quantifies volumes and describes Green Cargo AB’s logistic system for ready made clothing. From these data Key Performance Indicators were calculated. With information given from the mapping, a couple of flows with such prerequisites that would allow improvement were selected. These flows were further analysed to identify and evaluate the conditions of the potentials “Consolidation of Goods” and “Return Flows”.

The flows that have been analysed evaluated are: Gothenburg – Umea, Gothenburg – Sundsvall, Gothenburg – Gavle and Gothenburg – Stockholm. The analyse resulted in the following statements: Consolidation of Goods

− There is enough storage capacity in Logistikcentra Väst if the fill rates are raised to 85 % in all of the analysed flows

− Largest potential is found in the flow between Gothenburg and Gavle with following key figures

o Average fill rate: 30 %

o Free capacity: 3 200 pallets yearly

o Available time after ordinary distribution : 5-7 hours

o Cubic price in train transport: 48 % of total costs Return Flows

− The return flow between Stockholm and Gothenburg offers the largest potential with a free capacity of 8 110 pallets, corresponding to 20 614 m 3, yearly

− Longest available time after ordinary distribution is found in Stockholm where it averages from 7,5 to 9,8 hours

− The highest delivery frequency is also found in Stockholm where it averages between three and four days a week At the end of the thesis an analyse of the possibility to transport the goods of Logistikcentra Ost, Stockholm, to Gothenburg, using the free capacity in the return flow with same stretch. In the appendix all data that has been processed during the project is attached.

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete har utförts på Green Cargo AB och inleddes för att man inom Green Cargo ville få vetskap om vilka potentialer som finns i det existerande logistiksystemet för konfektion.

För att identifiera och analysera potentialer inom Green Cargos konfektionslogistik genomfördes först en kartläggning av alla de konfektionsflöden företaget hanterar. Kartläggningen redogör för vilka volymer som transporteras genom Sverige för respektive kunds räkning. Utifrån dessa data har också fyllnadsgrader beräknats. Utifrån kartläggningen genomfördes ett urval av ett antal flöden som har goda möjligheter att påverkas. Dessa utvalda flöden analyserades vidare för att identifiera förutsättningarna i potentialerna ”samlastning” och ”returer”.

De flöden som analyserats är: Göteborg-Umeå, Göteborg-Sundsvall, Göteborg-Gävle samt Göteborg-Stockholm.

Analysen av respektive potential resulterade i följande fakta: Samlastning

− Tillräcklig lagerkapacitet i Logistikcentra Väst finns för att höja fyllnadsgraden till 85 % i samtliga undersökta flöden.

− Störst potential återfinns i flödet Göteborg-Gävle, med följande nyckeltal:

o Fyllnadsgrad: 30 %

o Fri kapacitet: 3 200 pallplatser årligen

o Ledig tid efter ordinarie distribution: 5-7 timmar

o Kubikmeterpris i dragning: 48 % av totalkostnaden Returer

− Returflödet mellan Stockholm – Göteborg erbjuder störst fri kapacitet med 8 110 pallplatser motsvarande 20 614 m 3 årligen

− Mest tillgänglig tid efter ordinarie distribution återfinns i Stockholm med 7,5 till 9,8 timmar

− Ovan nämnda flöde har även den högsta leveransfrekvensen med tre till fyra ordinarie leveranser per vecka Som avslutande stycke följer en analys över möjligheten att lasta Logistikcentra Osts varor i returflödet från Stockholm till Göteborg. I bilagorna återfinns alla data som tagits fram under projektet.
