Abstract [en]




Purpose: The Essay is written on behalf of a company called ”Uppdragsgivaren”. The purpose is to connect theory with the result of the survey and thereby find the critical factors for an optimal placement of the cargo holders in the company’s terminal.




Method: A qualitative case study has been carried out. The theory collection is completed with the result from the survey, which include the information “Uppdragsgivaren“ provides and the result from the survey. The survey is completed with telephone interviews. The survey is sent to seven persons working on similar company as “Uppdragsgivaren”. The study has a combination between the positivistic and hermeneutic view. The result is treated deductive. Theory and empirical are connected and among several theories one is chosen and will be tested on the company. Recommendations are given to “Uppdragsgivaren” and so are suggestions on further studies.


Result: The test shows that one part of the model is possible for “Uppdragsgivaren” to use when they want to optimize the cargo holder terminal. Part one of the tested model is independent from frequency and volume, and is therefore not applicable. Part two is applicable and the cargo holders can be arranged based on their volume. The result is thus that the most frequent cargo holder shall be placed on the most accessible area.
