Packaging Logistics Performance
2011 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Today’s trends are the ever growing competition with increasedglobalization and sustainability. Together with ongoing technologicaldevelopments it has made it easier to demand right quality of products andservices, this has also resulted in increased demands for legislation andtraceability. This development has also an impact on packaging andpackaging logistics.This dissertation deals with packaging, logistics and performance whenpackaging interacts with users and take a standpoint by finding answers tothe research question: How can a systematic and holistic approach topackaging increase the logistics performance to create efficiency andeffectiveness?The purpose of this work is to increase knowledge regarding the packagingand its interacting role with agents in the Supply-Demand Chain in orderto improve Packaging Logistics Performance. Further the thesis aims toincrease knowledge in the area of Packaging Logistics Performance.Performance in packaging logistics is about doing the right thing andthings right as well as position products and services relative to itscompetitor. 

A model has been created to increase knowledge of packaging logisticsperformance, which covers interaction between packaging system with itsusers. This also model includes the tool. 'Packaging Scorecard' thatmeasures the packaging logistics performance and shows the packagingrelateddeficiencies that exist in various levels of the value chain.Furthermore, the tool developed to enable efficient product development.The developed model will provide support for the development ofpackaging strategies to change the existing systems or develop newsystems. The strategies also take into account the agents involved in thesupply-demand chain by demonstrating the requirements on the packagingand how small changes in the packaging system contributes to a significantimprovement in the value chain. Theoretical tool enables a betterintegration between in picking up the desired packaging informationinteracting with the agents and the right knowledge on packaging can behandled more efficiently.New functions and roles for companies operating in the various logisticprocesses were identified for example the research has identified a newtype of service the Network Integrator that manages integrate the supplychain with the demand chain. This function was also identified in thepackaging area and this agent named the Packaging Integrator. 

To increase understanding of the Supply-Demand Chain the toolCATWOE (Customer, Agents, Transformation processes, World view,Owners and Environment) was applied. This tool futher developed for toadapt with packaging logistics performance and complexity theory. Thegeneral methodology was action based research and case studies.The developed model illustrates packaging systems and how they performin order to create conditions for better and more efficient packaginglogistics performance. The thesis explores and presents ways to improvethe opportunities that co-operate for better packaging, and integration ofvalue chains.Research in theoretical contribution is to demonstrate knowledge ofpackaging systems, understanding the interactive roles and existingrequirements in the Supply-Demand-Chain. Practical contributions werethe valuable empirical knowledge and increased understanding ofpackaging requirements and its interactions with agent to create conditionsfor effectiveness, efficiency and differentiation.

Abstract [sv]

The purpose of this work was to study the packaging supplier and the integration of integrating packaging suppliers into the supply and demand chain (SDC). The packaging industry has been analyzed using a structured market analysis, and the companies studied have been positioned in an integration model for packaging suppliers. In addition, case studies were conducted to study the development of the packaging industry and its integration within the SDC in the Scandinavian region.

The analysis shows that there are gaps in the business relations between the packaging companies studied and the SDC. Most of the packaging suppliers were not integrated into the SDC. Valuable information, available in the network, seldom reaches the packaging supplier who holds the knowledge necessary to create and offer innovative packaging solutions.

The article provides an empirical exploration into the field of packaging, logistics and SDC integration and an original conceptual framework that could serve as a theoretical framework for future research work applied in the packaging industry and an interesting business model to the increase understanding of packaging supply chain integration.

Abstract [en]

To support a more holistic approach to the contribution of packaging to efficiency and value creation in the product supply chain, a systematic evaluation method Packaging Scorecard - has been developed and tested in two case studies. The Packaging Scorecard is based on research of functional criteria of packaging and the theories of Balanced Scorecard, a general management approach to evaluating organisational performance using different perspectives. The results of the case studies indicate that the method can be very useful to get a systematic overview of packaging performance throughout the product supply chain.

Abstract [en]

Packaperforma is a tool developed in order to increase the efficiency, effectiveness and differentiation in the future design of packaging systems. The tool is based on the theory Packaging Logistics Performance. Packaperforma is a further development of Packaging Scorecard and it could be utilized by packaging designers and supply chain managers to see the functions of the packaging system in the logistics processes. This means that the gap between packaging decisions and logistics decisions can be mitigated, as it can share the downstream information with the upstream and the designers. Packaperforma is used to conduct comparative studies in multiple Supply-Demand Chains. A study as such increases the quantity of data in the Packaperforma database that could be used to indicate the performances of the packaging, the agent and the Supply Demand Chains. The paper presents a study on Packaging Logistics Performance, how to evaluate packaging performance; how to collect feedback information from different agents and efficiently solve packaging related problem. Further the paper describes a web system based tool, packaging performance indicators and packaging performance database.
