    Effekter av tillväxt genom ett informationslogistiskt perspektiv: En studie som belyser ett tillverkande företags expansiva tillväxt och transporter2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Many companies have experienced growth within their organizations over the past fewyears, which has influenced these companies’ internal and external organizational structure.Companies have been affected by globalization since the geographical boundaries have been erased, which has led to an increase in demand for products and transportationrequirements. Previous research shows that there is a significant increase in a company’stransportation costs during periods of growth, which therefore requires an improved control over these costs.

    Based on the purpose of the research was to find a suitable and theoretical framework in order to identify and visually highlight the Information logistics’ effects by growth. The purpose of this research was to investigate and explore the effects of expansive growth during a specific period of time and how that effects a manufacturing company through an Information logistics perspective, with limitation to transport.

    The research in this study has been answered with the help of a qualitative method in which semi-structured interviews have been used to collect empirical data. Then this data has been analyzed through the three different approaches which is description, systematisation and categorization and the answers are handled ethically.

    The result of the case study showed that the administrative work has not been prioritized during a period of growth. Through the developed theoretical framework TOEI, the result has been analyzed and the Information logistics’ effects could be identified in the four main categories technical, organizational, environmental and individual. The case study concluded that companies affected by rapid growth experience the following risk factors: information overflow, increasing work assignment, lack of time and uncontrolled cost support.
