Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


During the Summer of 1999, the authors sent a survey to 665 Danish logistics service providers. These firms included air, rail and truck transportation providers, warehousing companies, freight forwarders and multi-function third-party logistics providers. Survey results suggest that Danish logistics providers tend to be "niche firms", focusing on the domestic market and limited sets of customers by industry (e.g. food and beverage). There is also considerable use of functional subcontracting in the logistics industry, particularly with respect to the transportation function. While Danish logistics firms overall offer a wide range of services, little is offered in the areas of information systems and supply chain design This paper presents full details and results of the survey, along with a discussion of issues for further research.
