Detta är en M1-uppsats från Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning

Sammanfattning: Purpose – The main purpose of the study is to identify the data contained in the degree of completion follow-up file. An additional purpose is to be able to create a basis for improving the degree of filling with the help of, among other things, the follow up-file. To fulfil the purposes, these two research questions have been formulated: 1. What are the typical challenges in measuring the degree of filling? 2. How can the degree of filling be improved? Method – A case study was conducted at the case company to answer the research questions.A combining of quantitative and qualitative data has been collected. A literature study has been conducted to increase understanding of study’s focus area. In parallel with the literature study, empirical data is collected through the case study. Methods for data collection summarizeinterviews and analysis of document study. The theoretical framework and the information gathered were later analysed and a result was generated. Findings – At the case company, it emerged that the data on which the degree of filling is measured is not entirely known. The case company has difficulty knowing what the data contains and what criteria the data is measured against. The degree of filling has a declining trend while loaded volume has an upward trend and changes that should have given a higher degree of filling has not given the desired effect. The main reason is that the planned volume has not changed in connection with other changes that should increase the degree of filling. Limitations – The main limitation has been the Covid-19 pandemic which forced the study to be conducted on distance. The restriction prevented insight in the practical working structuresand stock structure of the case company. The study focuses on only one case company, which limits generalizability.  Keywords – Filling rate, Loading, Information flow, Transportation cost
