    Optimering av logistikflödet: Utredning av brister och framtagning av förbättringsförslag i logistiken hos DinBox Sverige AB2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    DinBox Sverige AB sells mailboxes on the scandinavian market with production outsourced to a supplier in China. The company started in the end of 2007, relatively young in other words. The logistical flow from order to delivery of product, is a very important and vital part  of the business. The logisticial flow is today not flawless and there are problems with deliveries.

    I was assigned within my thesis in supply-chain management the task to investigate the logistical flow in detail in order to suggest improvements.

    The purpose of the task is to find what problems that occur, map out what costs these problems cause and investigate how to avoid errors in the future. The thesis should result in a fitting suggestion for improvement that decreases the control of the logistical flow from order to delivery.

    The result of the thesis has been achieved through a thorough analysis of the present situation, making a flowchart and identifying the problems in the processes. The problems have been broken down in to main causes and are subject for the suggestions of improvement.

    The final suggestion of improvement means communication between involved parties in the company and the supplier in China takes place in an extranet. When the order passes through the logistical flow every part has to control and approve the order before it is passed on to the next part. In that way a control system that secures the appropriate handling of the order throughout the flow is achieved. The extranet also gives the possibility to tracking information and goods in the logistical flow since the data can be stored in the system. The inventory when goods arrive is simplified and secured by implementing a barcode system which means all articles are automatically identified.

    The conclusion of the thesis is that a thorough preliminary study and analysis of the present situation are crucial for identifying the most costly and critical problems in the logistical flow. By improvements of processes within the area of supply-chain there are a lot that can be made more efficient and save money for the company.
