Third-party logistics in construction: Perspectives from suppliers and transport providers
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 22nd EurOMA Conference: Operations Management for Sustainable Comeptitivness, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
Suppliers and transport providers are key parties in the construction supply chain, and their respective roles when employing third-party logistics (3PL) is investigated. The purpose is to analyze how they are affected by the 3PL solution in terms of their attitudes towards the use of 3PL, the experienced defects from the 3PL solution, and their level of supply chain management (SCM) maturity. This is done by a literature review and an explorative case study at a large construction project employing a 3PL solution. Results show a positive attitude and that they actively address SCM issues, whereas actual effects are inconclusive.
