Since I started my PhD studies in March 2003, I have had a great time. I consider myself lucky to have had a work I really enjoy, and people around me that I like. It is, however, now time to finish my PhD studies and there are several people I would like to express my gratitude to. As the structured researcher I have become, I have divided them into three categories. The first category consists of friends and colleagues at the university:

My supervisors Mats Abrahamsson, H\u00e5kan Aronsson and Per \u00c5man for all guidance and
support with my manuscript.
Fredrik Stahre, Dan Andersson and Maria Huge Brodin for giving extra comments when
most needed.
Kristina Dalberg for all help with the layout.
\u201cGrabbarna p\u00e5 Logistik\u201d, i.e. my PhD colleagues at the logistics division. Thanks for all
discussions about everything and anything.
All other colleagues in the Logistics Marketing Group.

The second category consists of Vinnova, the sponsor of my research, and the respondents to my survey and interviewees at my case companies. Thanks for taking your time \u2013 I have learned a lot from you!

The third group incorporates my friends and family. Thanks for all great family sessions at Revsudden, vacations, dinners and board game battles with friends that have helped me to relax and forget about my work. The most important person of all is, however, my wife Emma. You have been there for me all the time throughout my PhD journey, and have given me such great support. I love you!
