Abstract [en]

The continued growth of regions in a state of economic expansion is often stunted by their inability to assess, maintain and expand logistics infrastructure. The need for a comprehensive, detailed and intuitively understandable logistics capability model to aid in the assessment phase of logistics maintenance and expansion provides motivation for this thesis. Logistics benchmarking can also be presented to attract prospective clients and provide basis for further development. Through the process of extensive literature review, we perform objective evaluations and provide a single recommendation for regional logistics capability modeling within a limited research scope. We recommend a 12 category logistic evaluator model with an interview process and expert scoring. The scoring is performed on the basis of logistics data and statistics. An implementation of the model is performed on Gävle, Sweden and is partially validated with a case study on GEVALIA Coffee. Implementations on SWOT and a discussion of the similarities of the 12 category logistics evaluator model and AHP will be given.
