Problems of Inter-organizational Interaction of Participants in Motor Transport Cargo Shipments


  • Faculty of Economics and Management, Siberian Automobile and Highway Academy (SibADI), Omsk, Russian Federation


Background/Objectives: The study considers currently important problems of inter-organizational interaction of participants involved in automotive cargo shipments and implementation of such concepts as "Just-in-Time" and "Justin- Sequence" in scheduling practices. Methods: The applied Six Sigma methodology is focused on the client's wishes and requirements for cargo delivery, according to which the slow processes are expensive. The applied "lean production" method is based on the fact that shipping time losses occur during transportation and waiting time. Thus, a refined methodology has been developed synthesizing "Lean production" and "Six Sigma", one of the tools which is the concept of "just in time" delivery. Findings: It has been concluded that one of the reasons for low efficiency of the day-to-day scheduling efforts is represented by the problems of organizational interrelations between the stakeholders of the highway cargo transportation business. Generalizations of the road haulage practices together with the outcomes of the investigations carried out by Siberian Automobile and Highway Academy made it possible to identify the groups of interaction problems and the causes in this area. A conceptual approach has been suggested to solve these issues based on such logistical principles as "Just-in-Time" and "Just-in-Sequence". In line with the developed approach, the article justifies the need to introduce the above mentioned principles to scheduling practices to improve the processes of control and management in haulage sector. Developing and implementing "Just-in-Time" and "Just-in-Sequence" philosophy in transport logistics is of crucial importance, as it is only within such system that the cargo delivery process could be comprehensively controlled. This system improves customer relationships, establishes the company at the market, stabilizes its financial standing, and enhances its competitive advantages. Applications/Improvements: The study identifies preconditions and constrains to be taken into account in the course of developing scheduling model for material and information flows in the area of automotive cargo shipments.
