    Response of Fuel Subsidy Removal as Sustainable Transport Policy: Case Study: Workers in Jakarta Metropolitan Area2016In: Journal of the Civil Engineering Forum, ISSN 2581-1037, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 167-174Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Motorization in urban areas contributes several problems such as congestion, accidents, gas emissions, noises, and infrastructure breakage. Meanwhile, most of the developing countries cannot overcome such growth activities, as well as in Jakarta. By December 2013, Vice Governor of Jakarta proposes fuel subsidy removal policy as one of sustainable transport policy. This study is intended to understand and investigate how fuel subsidy removal policy scenarios (25%, 50%, and 100%) in Jakarta affects travelers’ behavior and analyze such policy to support sustainable transport by using qualitative research methodology. Interviews and questionnaires survey is conducted to workers in Jakarta, which includes ranking scale question for traveler response options. The result shows that half of the respondents are not affected and will only respond to fuel price increasing at IDR 31,400 for gasoline price and IDR 26,300 for ADO (Auto Diesel Oil). Moreover, there is a tendency of respondent's to the response by changing their travel mode choices into more fuel efficient private vehicle.

    Navigating Multi-modal Public Transport Systems: Real time perceptions of processual usability using video methodology2012In: TRANSPORT RESEARCH ARENA 2012, Elsevier, 2012, p. 2211-2220Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Collection of data of customer processes are difficult, due to its dynamic and complex nature. This study reports on some initial findings using a video-based methodology in collecting naturally occurring visual data of travellers using different modes of transport (bus, tram, train, boat, subway) in Stockholm City. The study involves able-bodied and disabled travellers (customers) and identifies environmental and processual factors that are critical for the passengers handling multimodal door-to-door trips.

    The role of organisational capabilities in the formation of value networks in public transport services2012In: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, E-ISSN 2040-8277, Vol. 37, no 5, p. 556-576Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of organisational capabilities (dynamic and operational) in the formation of value networks in the context of public transport services.Design/methodology/approach – The theoretical argument is substantiated with qualitative data from four narratives on value network formations in the Swiss public transport system. These four narratives cover two types of new value networks: incremental improvements in established value networks; and radical leaps in emerging value networks.Findings – These two types of new value networks entail the co‐evolution of different dynamic and operational capabilities.Research limitations/implications – The study is limited by the qualitative research approach.Practical implications – Public transport operators can utilise the findings on organisational capabilities to guide incremental improvements in their existing value network and/or radical leaps into an emerging value network.Social implications – Governments should not only seek to increase transport capacity, but also aim to develop value networks to enhance public transport service experiences.Originality/value – The paper applies value‐network thinking to public transport services. It offers a comprehensive framework to help organisations manage the formation of value networks. The results provide testable propositions that can be used to guide future research.

    Service Development in Outsourced Public Service Networks: A Study in the Public Transport Sector2012In: International Business Research, ISSN 1913-9004, E-ISSN 1913-9012, Vol. 5, no 5, p. 26-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When public-sector services are outsourced to private commercial operators, the issue of new-service development can become problematical because the political/social objectives of the controlling authority are often different from the commercial imperatives of the private operator. These (often conflicting) imperatives can cause difficulties in new-service development with regard to both: (i) deciding what new services are required; and (ii) deciding how the service-development process should proceed. This study takes a qualitative approach in investigating what happens during the development of new services in the Swedish public-transport sector, in which services are contractually outsourced from public authorities to private commercial operators by public tender. The results of the study show that: (i) the development of new services in this context is especially challenging; (ii) conflicts do arise between public and commercial interests; (iii) collaborative service development is significantly hampered by the regulatory framework and contractual arrangements; and (iv) the contracts themselves actually represent an important aspect of the overall service-development process. The implication for managers is that the formulation of tendering documents and contracts must be seen as an important determinant of service development, often for many years in advance.

    Passenger representation within the light-handed regulation - Insights from the Australian air transport market2018In: Transport Policy, ISSN 0967-070X, E-ISSN 1879-310X, Vol. 71, p. 106-115Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article critically reviews the representation of passengers within the light-handed regulation (LHR) that has been in place in the Australian air transport market since 2002. The focus is the commercial negotiations between airlines and airports concerning investments that affect passengers as key stakeholders, end-users, and payers. The article draws on literature on consumer representation and willingness to pay, as well as data from 21 in-depth interviews. The findings suggest that within the current arrangement, passengers are dependent on airlines as their representatives, although their interests may differ concerning investments in airport infrastructure and services. This dependency is leveraged by the current airline duopoly in the Australian domestic air transport market because passengers have no transport alternatives among which to choose. Airports charging passengers their fees (and eventually negotiating prices for improved services) directly is not deemed a suitable option because it could increase the airports' market power and affect the passenger experience negatively. Recommendations, such as involving an independent representation body and diversifying service provision at the airport, are discussed as possibilities for increasing passengers' influence.

    Pre-requisites for a successful supply chain integration – A case study of how RFID usage in the transport process can contribute2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This Master thesis has been made for Volvo Group Trucks Operations, Logistics Services (VGLS) in Gothenburg. Other companies within the Volvo Group and Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) have been involved during the process, including Volvo Trucks Umeå (VTU), Volvo Trucks Tuve (VTT) and Volvo Cars Body Components (VCBC) in Olofström.

    The thesis has examined activities within the supply chain process between three factories, VCBC – VTU – VTT. The different companies at each location serve different purposes in the supply chain, ultimately leading to a finished truck. To get a complete truck it takes different types of resources and thus an effective and well-functioning infrastructure to cope with the transportation of resources in an efficient way. VGLS is the provider of logistics services between the factories, meaning VGLS is in charge of the transportation process between the locations and take care of related transportation issues.

    A few years ago a project was started with the participation of VGLS with the aim to identify different types of objects better, via Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), aiming to create a more efficient supply chain. VGLS now wants to further exploit this technology as future implementation of RFID is soon ahead of them. According to the possibilities and opportunities related to RFID this thesis has critically examined activities in the supply chain process and its underlying problems, trying to create the right conditions for VGLS in order for them to better cope and utilize a near future RFID implementation.

    The main result of this study indicates that the problems of the transportation flow don’t derive from the physical transportation of material, but rather in the information flow between the actors. The results indicate that more emphasis should be placed on creating new ways to achieve more efficient information sharing, which in some cases can be facilitated through the use of RFID.

    Verktyg för samhällsekonomisk värdering av temporära upplag av bergmassor i svenska storstäder: Scenariostudie i Göteborg med beaktande av livscykelanalys och kostnad-nytta-analys2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When constructing in urban areas, it is common to use material that is stored or extracted far away from the construction site. The material is then transported long distances and the transportations lead to large costs, both economically and environmentally. Excavated soil and rock masses from construction and demolition is seldom used optimally and is rarely recycled in an optimal way. An improved handling and recycling of the masses could potentially reduce costs for involved actors, while society could benefit from less environmental impact. The research questions addressed in this report are:

    1. Does the introduction of more local storage for excavated soil and rock masses for construction in cities lead to socioeconomic savings?
    2. What impact has environmental costs on the total cost, and are there social aspects that should be considered?
    3. What are the opportunities and difficulties of combining LCA and CBA to evaluate the socioeconomic benefits of a local storage?

    A calculation tool was developed to investigate whether a temporary storage reduces the costs and environmental impacts. Theories about Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) has been studied and been the basis for the calculation tool. The calculation tool was then tested on a realistic scenario in the city of Gothenburg and was limited to only handle excavated rock.

    The result was that the study could not show that an introduction of a more local storage always leads to economic improvements. A mobile crusher was used in the local storage in the tested scenario. If a stationary crusher would be used instead, the outcome would be much more beneficial with a local storage. The developed calculation tool can be adapted for testing different scenario studies and can in an early stage, give an indication for if implementing a local storage is socioeconomic beneficial. The input data can easily be changed to suit different circumstances and to make accurate calculations for different scenarios. The calculation tool takes into account differences in the cost of construction of the storage, cost of crushing rock, transport costs and environmental impact. The environmental and social costs examined seem to have little impact on the total cost. It is advantageous to study both LCA and CBA to get more perspectives in the assessment and evaluation of the current situation compared to future changes.

    IMPLEMENTATION OF SERVICE DOMINANT LOGIC IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT (Case Study: Lampung Province)2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

     

    Private vehicle using is leading to increased traffic congestion, air pollution and mounting social disparities, especially at big city. Particularly in Lampung Province, Bandar Lampung as a capital of Lampung province is trying to initiate creating sustainable integrated public transportation and it has been started while several public transport companies together established Trans Bandar Lampung. At early, it was going really well and Bandar Lampung citizen started to use this Buss Rapid Transit System. However, due to Trans Bandar Lampung was built as private company, government did not fund subsidy for it. Trans Bandar Lampung started to face problem especially in maintenance term.

    Research methodology of this research is using qualitative research. By fitting between theories and data collection, qualitative research tends to be associated with words or images as the unit of analysis. The hypothesis was tested by spreading questioners to the respondents as primary data. The primary data is used to understand about public transport user in Lampung Province. On the other side, secondary data is used to analyze the current condition public transportation in Lampung Province.

    The objective of this research is to examine current condition public transport system in Lampung Province. Generating sustainable public transport system on Lampung Province, providing advice to prenting Trans Bandar lampung from collapse. Furthermore, this research also assess about performance of public transportation on Lampung. At the end, it will provide some reflection to developed counties; Zurich and Freiburg with the purpose of comparing their transportation and land use planning institutions, processes, and actions for the importance placed on achieving sustainability.

    Leveranstid vs. Kostnad: En fallstudie inom postorderbranschen2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When customers make purchases from the distance trade industry the delivery time is an important aspect. E-commerce companies, and many mail-order companies, have successfully managed to adapt to this and provides relatively fast deliveries. But those mail-order companies, whose business idea is to provide subscription of consumables, has not kept pace with these developments and still provide relatively long delivery times for new orders. This affects customer satisfaction negatively, and results in a decrease in sales. Efforts should therefore be made to reduce the delivery time. A shortened delivery time is, however, associated with a higher cost of the supply-chain that has the obligation to serve the customers. The purpose of this master thesis is to balance the increased costs against the increased sales revenue expected to be generated by a reduced delivery time. By doing so, mail-order companies could achieve higher profitability.

    Through a case study on EFI AB, together with support of theoretical assumptions, it has been analysed how mail order company can respond to customers' expectations on delivery time. A survey and analysis of the case- company's current supply-chain has generated proposals for two alternative supply-chains with reduced delivery times. The different processes' delivery times and costs were then compared with each other, and translated relative to customer expectations.

    The case study concludes that customers have lower requirements on delivery time from mail-order companies than from e-commerce companies. Mail- order companies thus do not relate to the same demanding requirements of e- commerce consumers regarding e-commerce companies’ delivery time. However, mail order companies could gain competitive advantage by reducing the delivery time. Reduced delivery times can be achieved through relatively simple restructures of the supply-chain, and do not necessarily result in excessive additional costs. Furthermore, mail-order companies can use both marketing and customer service as tools to reduce the importance of delivery time for customer.
