Abstract: Today the planning of the transports at Hälsingestintan is done without any tools. Every year the problem regarding the planning is getting more complex and complicates the logistics of the transports. The purpose with the study is to investigate the logistics related to the mobile abattoir and the refrigerated truck in Hälsingestinans process flow. This is relevant due to identify if an optimization model has potential to reduce the transport costs when using this concept. Furthermore, the difference between the used planning strategies of the model and Hälsingestintan will be compared to identify if there are any clear differences between the methods.
