Peak Oils inverkan på logistisk verksamhet
Examensarbete på grundnivå
A world ever more globalized, where cheap oil and thereby cheap transports enable new logistical solutions and efficiency measures, has come to characterise development and economic growth during the last decades. However, this development is threatened by the onset of Peak Oil. Peak Oil is defined as the point in time when the global production of crude oil reaches its production maximum and then subsequently decreases over time. Peak Oil and its effects in the form of rising oil prices, will in one way or another change the shape of logistics. In order to investigate the effects that increased fuel costs have on transport and other logistical operations, which lessons that are derivable from previous crises, as well as what level of consciousness that is prevalent, one qualitative interview were held, coupled with questions asked in e-mail inquiries. The questions were asked to respondents, where their answers then provided the foundation for the result. The answers that the respondents gave make it clear that the development of oil prices have a large impact on the way which transports are conducted and on the present trade pattern. New processes, new ways of conducting business and alternative fuels are questions that will play an ever increasing role in the future. This report is written in Swedish.
