  1. 1. A Systems View of Advancements in Biomass Supply Chains

    Författare :Johanna Enström; Aron Larsson; Leif Olsson; Lars Eliasson; Anders Eriksson; Daniel Nilsson; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Forestry logistics; Supply Chain Management; Discrete Event Simulation; Forest fuel;

    Sammanfattning : Forest fuel is an important source of energy with potential for increased use in the Nordic countries. Profitable forest operations are dependent on logistics as the forest is a natural resource with varying conditions over widespread areas. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Supply chain optimization in the forest industry

    Författare :Helene Gunnarsson Lidestam; Mikael Rönnqvist; Jan Lundgren; Eldon Gunn; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supply chain; logistics; forestry; optimization; modelling; transportation; mixed integer programming models; försörjningskedjor; logistik; optimering; modellering; transportplanering; blandade heltalsproblem; skogsindustrin; Optimization; systems theory; Optimeringslära; systemteori;

    Sammanfattning : The scope of this thesis is modelling and solving large-scale planning problems in the supply chain within the forest industry. Five research papers are included, the first three of which focus on the modelling, and the last two on the solution methods. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Integration of logistics network in local food supply chains

    Författare :Techane Bosona; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The demand for locally produced food is increasing as global food supply system has considerably affected the confidence of consumers by increasing tonne-kilometres, food safety risk, environmental impact, and disconnecting local food producers and consumers. However, local food suppliers are not in the position to compete with large scale food supply systems due to high logistics costs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Assessment of local food distribution : challenges and possibilities for logistics development

    Författare :Ingrid Nordmark; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : There is increasing interest in local food, as consumers feel confidence in such food. Local food has good opportunities to fulfil quality aspects/requirements of transparency and traceability in the supply chain due to the possibilities for direct interaction between producers and consumers.

  5. 5. Purchasing practices of environmentally preferable transport services, Guidance to increased shipper considerations

    Författare :Maria Björklund; Teknisk logistik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technological sciences; Industriell ekonomi; Commercial and industrial economics; Shippers perspective; Logistics Management; Transport services; Green Purchasing; Purchasing; Environment; Teknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The logistical activity of transport is one of the largest contributors to several environmental problems. One efficient and effective way to decrease the environmental impact from transports is to implement changes in the logistically related strategies and activities applied, such as the selection of transport suppliers.
