Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to find a more cost effective model for purchasing and logistics at a

small company. The studied company is a BMX (bicycle motocross) and MTB

(mountain bike) retailer. The questions to be answered are: How large parties should

be ordered and what mode of transportation is to be used? A literature orientation of

the field was followed by visits to the company, obtaining information from two

different logistics companies and interviews of four other companies in the same

industry. The study shows that it´s difficult to develop an optimum order quantity for

a small company since there often are other factors affecting how large amount

should be ordered. For RITE.SE the demand is relatively low and uneven which makes

it harder to find an optimum order quantity. The size of the containers used for

shipping also limits the optimum quantity. The result of the study shows that sea

freight is the preferred transport from global suppliers and that air freight, which was

also examined, was not suited for the complete bikes that RITE.SE imported. A full

container with 196 bikes is the optimum order quantity.
