Center of Logistic - A Study of a future central warehouse for Gärdin & Persson AB (English)
Abstract [sv]

Manga foretag star idag infor beslutet om att infora centrallager eller ej. Trenden mot en centraliserad verksamhet har pekat uppat under en relativt lang tid nu, men vart och ett av de foretag som overvager fragan maste se till sina forutsattningar och behov. Langt ifran alla ar mogna for ett centrallager, en stor forandring i organisationens struktur kravs for att dra nytta av en centralisering.

Gardin & Persson AB (GP) ar ett foretag med mer an 100-ariga anor i Jamtland, dar huvudbutiken ligger i Ostersund med en filial i Stromsund. De senaste aren har koncernen expanderat i Vasterbotten med en butik i Umea och en i Ornskoldsvik. De har ocksa kopt in affarssystemet SAP (System Application Products) for att enklare lanka samma information mellan koncernens bolag. Att ta steget mot ett centrallager har diskuterats sedan expansionen, men for att skapa ett underlag for beslutet har bland annat denna analys genomforts.

Da det gemensamma affarssystemet infordes tog koncernen redan sitt forsta viktiga steg mot en mer centraliserad verksamhet. En studie om ett gemensamt sortiment har precis startat vilket kan ses som steg nummer tva. Att GP har en vilja att utnyttja koncernen ar darmed givet.

Fragestallningarna som behandlats i rapporten ar huruvida koncernen klarar av en organisatorisk forandring eller ej. Transportplaneringen kommer att forandras helt och sa aven inkopsenheten. Fordelarna med en centralisering ar ocksa atskilliga. Foretaget kan dra nytta bade i form av battre leverantorsavtal samt genom sankta lagernivaer. Den stora avvagningen star mellan den okade transportkostnaden och den minskade kapitalbindningen, forbattrade leverantorsavtalen samt ovriga insparade logistikkostnader.

Var rekommendation till foretaget ar att ga vidare med satsningen pa en centraliserad lagerstruktur. Atgarder som forst maste vidtas ar att se over det ordinarie sortimentet samt finna en hallbar transportlosning mellan centrallagret och butikerna. Det kravs aven battre dokumentationer for vilka rutiner olika arbetsuppgifter ska befatta. En grundlig studie av vad SAP anvads till idag, samt vilka outnyttjade funktioner som finns att tillga bor ocksa undersokas.

Abstract [en]

To build a central warehouse or not is a question for many companies today. The trend has been pointing strait up, but what each company must consider is their own requirements and needs. Far from all companies are ready for a central warehouse, it takes a big structural change in the organization to take advantage of a centralization.

Gardin & Persson AB is a company with more than 100 years of tradition in Jamtland. The last couple of years the corporation has expanded in Vasterbotten with one store in Umea and one in Ornskoldsvik. They have also bought the business system SAP to make the sharing of information between the companies easier. To take the step towards a central warehouse has been discussed since the expansion, but for building a base for the decision this report has been done.

When the business system was introduced the corporation took thire first major step against a more centralized business. A study of a common assortment has just started which is seen as therefore step number two. That GP wants to take advantage of being one company is certain.

The questions treated in this report are whether or not the corporation can handle the organizational changes. Both transport planning and the purchasing unit will change completely. There are several benefits with centralization. The company can draw benefits of better vendor deals and lower inventory levels. The big tradeoff is between the increased transportation costs and the decreased tied up capital, improved vendor deals and other reduced logistics expenses.

We recommend the company to continue with the investments in a centralized inventory structure. Measures that GP must take are to find a common assortment and to find a lasting transportation solution between the central warehouse and the stores. This demands better documentation of which routines that different tasks should include. A solid study of what SAP is used for today and which unused features that is available must also be done.
