Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how construction logistics work for the ongoing

project “Årstastråket” Stage 1, and to identify the logistics problems that the project may

have. The aim then is to find solutions to these problems in order to avoid them in the

upcoming projects. The study will include delopment of a standard template that can be used

in logistics planning of the project. At the beginning of the study a comprehensive literature

review of the available literature including reports and research articles was done to obtain a

deeper knowledge of the subject in question. The result of this study is based on conducted

case studies on the construction site, such as interviews and site visits. The majority of

collection in the case study was mainly collected from 11 site visits, which then was

supplemented with the information obtained from the interviews. The interviews were

conducted with the local manager and supervisor of the project at “Årstastråket” Stage 1. In

this study the construction logistics worked generally well, both in terms of transport- and

material flow at the construction site. The main logistics problems identified in “Årstastråket”

Stage 1 was particularly poor logistics planning of the project at an early stage, lack of visual

communication and constant updating of construction site plan alongside project developing.

The new developed standard template for logistics planning of the project at an early stage

can be used in order to achieve the established goals and make the project even more
