Title: Citylogistik - En kvalitativ studie över åkeriers inställning till att samarbeta inom citylogistik

Abstract: Large cities around the world are facing a substantial urbanization, increased demand and consumption and therefore the supply of goods in cities is facing major challenges that require a developed city logistics. City logistics aims to streamline transport in city centers and thus improve aspects such as environment, congestion and noise in order to accommodate a living attractive city. One of the problems today is that existing cities are not optimally built for the increased distribution as the increased number of inhabitants as well as consumption demand, which imposes changes on logistics itself. One way to improve logistics in cities is through collaborations where operators can consolidate goods in order to reduce traffic, emissions and congestion. The purpose of the study is to investigate whether there is an interest at the haulier industry to form cooperations for distribution in the city center of Gothenburg. It is investigated through a qualitative study based on a literature search, supplemented with interviews and observations with operators who are currently working with distribution in the center of Gothenburg. To support the process of the essay there are four questions that aim to answer the purpose of the study, where the main question is whether there is a willingness among the operators to participate in changes, for an improved distribution in the center of Gothenburg. The study results in the need for changes in distribution in Gothenburg today and that there is an interest from the operators to participate in changes. However, they consider that there are many obstacles before cooperation can be implemented. The conclusion is, however, that if looking at the forthcoming logistic trends that are considered to be realized in the near future, consolidation and different forms of cooperation are one of the solutions for a more efficient city logistics. This report is written in Swedish.
