    Abstract

    VTT and LUT carried out a joint excursion to Sweden in November 2006. The goal of the excursion was to benchmark Swedish companies and their Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) models in practice. The excursion was part of the "Mobile technologies and VMI solutions in industrial inbound logistics" project (TEMO project). Our objective was to discover different industrial VMI collaboration models and to compare our findings to our experience from Finnish VMI cases. Sweden was chosen as the benchmark as it has a long tradition in manufacturing, along with similar logistics challenges due to its Northern location as we have also in Finland. This report includes three different industrial VMI cases, our findings and analysis.
