AIR OR SURFACE FREIGHT? ASSESSMENT METHODS

FLYGFRAKT OCH/ELLER YTFRAKT? METODIK FOER UTVAERDERING

The objective of the project is to develop calculation procedures on which to base decisions when choosing between fast (air) and slow (sea) transportation modes. The methodology is based on a logistic approach where direct costs for transportation and material handling as well as indirect costs for stock keeping are considered. The main result is a computer program that considers all costs affected by the choice of transportation mode. The program is of special value when it is necessary to take capital costs into account. Furthermore, a special methodology has been developed for situations where it may be advantageous to combine fast and slow transportation modes instead of using them separately.
