Transcript of "Session 38 Vahid Mirzabeiki"

  1. 1. Chalmers University of Technology Smart Transportation Management Systems to Support Different Types of Information and Functions in a Supply Chain Vahid Mirzabeiki Division of Logistics and Transportation, Chalmers University of Technology Göteborg, Sweden Transportforum 2010, 13-14 januari i LinköpingVahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  2. 2. Chalmers University of Technology Agenda  Purpose of the research  Scope  Methodology  Frame of references  Analysis  ConclusionsVahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  3. 3. Chalmers University of Technology Purpose  To evaluate how much the Smart Transportation Management (STM) systems are supporting different valuable supply chain information types and their related functions for partners of the supply chain.  In other words, to identify how is the performance level of STM systems regarding different types of information and functions in supply chain.Vahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  4. 4. Chalmers University of Technology Scope  The information types analyzed in this research are the information that are mainly used for transportation and material handling operations in supply chain.  Large Swedish industrial and retailing companies are studied.  In this study support of information means preparing, exchanging or making the information more accurate or timely.  A simplified form of a supply chain shown in below is used for analysis in this paper.

  5. 5. Chalmers University of Technology Methodology  Literature studies were conducted to identify the STM systems and different services related to them according to definition of the STM. The valuable supply chain information types (SCITs) are identified out of the literature studies.  Direct observations, documents and interviews with company representatives during the exhibitions are accomplished to identify the STM systems and the information and functions supported by them.  Questionnaires and interviews with logistics managers of Swedish industrial and retailing companies were conducted to evaluate how much different information types and functions are supported by using the STM systems.Vahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  6. 6. Chalmers University of Technology Value-adding Supply Chain Information Types (SCITs) According to Lumsden and Mirzabeiki (2008) transportation related information types that create value for different partners of the industrial supply chain are:  Location of the products in the supply chain.  Condition of products in shipment.  Positioning and sequencing of products in shipments or inventory.  Inventory level and point-of-sale of retailer for each item.  Suppliers available for each product in the market.  History of sales for each item.  Warehouse operation information  Available items of companies for the customers.  Shipment quantity information in transportation.Vahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  7. 7. Chalmers University of Technology Smart Transport Management (STM) systems According to Stefansson and Lumsden (2009), STM systems is a new kind of transportation management system that moves data and information more effectively between partners, increases freight visibility, monitors involved activities in a better way, and increases interaction with infrastructure information to enhance dynamic routing and methods to increase transportation security. System STM systems Infrastructure Cornerstones Freight Information Systems (FIS) Vehicle Information Systems (VIS) Information Systems (IIS) - Route planning - In-truck goods Example - Auto identification (ID) systems for goods management identification - Navigation tracking - Missing goods notification services - Goods tracking - The truck and driver information - Transport delay notification - Arrival notification The cornerstones of the STM systems and their example servicesVahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  8. 8. Chalmers University of Technology Empirical study Degree of support for different types of information from the STM systems according to the practitioners interviews.  Group 1: Information related to location and condition  Group 2: Mostly related to warehousing and inventory management  Group 3: Sales informationVahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
  9. 9. Chalmers University of Technology Conclusions  Having real-time information regarding the location of the products through the supply chain and condition of the goods in shipments are the information that the current STM systems have focused on supporting them more than the other value-adding SCITs. The functions supported by using such information is shown on the table below:  The results of this research is helpful for practitioners at logistics companies to identify the advantages of using the STM systems. It is helpful to identify the information gaps and function gaps that could be fulfilled by further developments of the STM systems.Vahid MirzabeikiDivision of Logistics and Transportation
