Problem - Packaging requirements ? Which requirements are there, how do they affect each other and how are they fulfilled?

- Packaging process ? what is the line of action when developing new packaging and making adjustments in existing ones? Who has the responsibility to do what?

- Packaging logistics ? How is the packaging system adapted to transport efficiency and handling?

Objective To create an overall picture over how the packaging system affects and is affected by different functions and players within and beyond the company boundaries, to give a clear picture of how changes in the packaging system is made today and how it could work and finally to give suggestions for cost savings affected by the packaging system.

Method The methods used for this thesis has mainly consisted of action research and at some extent case studies. As a previous employee at the department of logistics at Volvo Penta I?ve taken part of the environment, information and prerequisites that this thesis discusses on a daily basis. Case studies have been used for the collection and analysis of data concerning packaging logistics as I?ve chosen to consider only specific markets and packaging.

Conclusions This thesis has highlighted the demands that are placed upon engine packaging throughout all concerned units and how these demands affect each other, positively and negatively. Packaging demands can be for example cost efficiency in transports, product protection or simplified manufacturing. A proposal for a new packaging group has been stated, where representatives from purchasing, production, logistics, shipping, insurances, third-party logistics and construction discuss packaging and the process of creating new and altering existing packaging. Finally, a few concrete proposals have been stated to highlight the potential for costs savings through increased efficiency in transports. (Less)
