Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to explore how sustainable competitive advantage is generated in two Swedish

best practice companies that successfully exploit logistics as a source for competitive advantage. Using

a theoretical framework based on the resource-based view of the firm, this research elaborates on the

links between operational and dynamic logistics capabilities and sustainable competitive advantage. The

findings conclude that a sustainable competitive advantage is based on a combination of efficient and effective

logistics operations and well-functioning, adjusted, in-house-developed IT systems. This operational

capability is in turn sustained through five dynamic capabilities: managerial knowledge and presence,

cross-functional teamwork, control, learning and supply chain relationships.
