Abstract [en]

Retail purchasing groups consist of small, independent, specialised stores that join together and collaborate on purchasing and other areas. In comparison to large-scale corporate retail chains, often labelled mega-retailers, retail purchasing groups are based on collaborative external integration between a central unit and the independent, local dealers. The overall purpose of this research is to explore the specific characteristics that underscore a retail purchasing group. The paper has two research questions: (1) What are the strengths and weaknesses of a supply chain structure based on external integration?, and (2) In what areas is the purchasing groups’ ownership structure particularly advantageous in comparison to the mega-retailers’ vertically integrated organisations? This exploratory research is empirically grounded in a case study of two Swedish purchasing groups. The paper argues that under certain market conditions, a decentralised supply chain, which relies on collaborative external relationships, can provide a competitive alternative to a more traditional centralised structure.  The paper elaborate three areas where the structure is particularly advantageous: (1) service-based competition in an industry otherwise focused on cost leadership, (2) in-depth understanding of local conditions and presence, and (3) the ability to incorporate entrepreneurial strengths and innovations in the supply chain.

Abstract [sv]

Logistik har de senaste åren blivit ett allt viktigare konkurrensmedel för många företag. Med logistiken som grund kan långsiktig lönsamhet och tillväxt skapas. Grundtanken med denna bok är att förklara logistikens roll utifrån ett företagsstrategiskt perspektiv. Därmed går boken utanför det som vanligtvis ses som logistikforskning och logistikteorier, och tar i stället sin utgångspunkt i strategiteori.

Bokens första del belyser logistikens strategiska betydelse utifrån tre strategiteoretiska perspektiv: marknadspositioneringsperspektivet, det resursbaserade perspektivet och det dynamiska perspektivet. Dessa perspektiv har dominerat strategiforskningen de senaste tre decennierna och kan ses som tre olika "glasögon" som bidrar med insikter till logistikområdet. Bokens andra del ägnas åt mer praktiska aspekter kring hur företaget ska agera när logistik är ett strategiskt konkurrensmedel. Här beskrivs en logistikbaserad affärsmodell samt företagsledningens roll i logistiken.

Abstract [sv]

För inköpsorganisationer i svenska handelsföretag är globaliseringen idag mycket tydlig. Landsgränser, handelstullar och geografiska avstånd får allt mindre betydelse och inköp från så kallade lågkostnadsländer blir allt vanligare.

Kina, Bangladesh, Indien och många andra asiatiska länder, samt lite närmare belägna länder i Östeuropa, har ökat kraftigt i betydelse. Kina är antagligen det leverantörsland som blivit mest attraktivt och mest omdiskuterat, kanske för att det idag inte bara kan ses som en fabrik för västvärlden. Kina är dessutom en stor marknad i sig själv, som är intressant för många västerländska företag att befinna sig på.
