INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS - A STATE OF THE ART DESCRIPTION OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN SWEDISH COMPANIES

INFORMATIONSSYSTEM FOER GODSTRANSPORTER EN NULAEGESBESKRIVNING AV OLIKA SYSTEM I SVENSK INDUSTRI

This report is a description of information systems at present existing or planned in five different Swedish firms. A number of information systems are therefore described, as well as the way they are used within the firms. The report provides a "state-of-the-art" description of the interest in information technology. No probing analyses of the effects of the systems have therefore been carried out. Nonetheless some conclusions may be drawn. The interest in open information systems is considerable. The firms studied here offer their customers information that has already been available for some time in their own internal systems. There appears also to exist a tendency to create systems (to be used) for clients, though such a development with regard to suppliers is not as evident. (a)
