Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of 3PL providers in large construction projects, and to identify main drivers and barriers, as well as the resulting effects, when implementing SCM by the use of 3PL providers. This is done by the means of a literature review and an explorative case study, the latter being a large hospital construction project. The results show positive performance effects in terms of increased productivity, resources utilization, and delivery performance, but also that there are challenges when it comes to organizational setting, policy adherence and supply chain coordination.
