AuthorKnapskog, Knut Arthur
This thesis is a part of the Master of Science degree in Industrial Engineering at the University of Tromsø – The arctic University of Norway, Campus Narvik. The aim of this thesis is to improve the logistic service and increase the competitiveness of ports in Northern Norway in order to attract more port users. A literature review on the topics of logistics in seaports is presented, along with an overview over ports in Northern Norway. A survey is conducted on ports in Northern Norway where information about their logistic service and logistic challenges is put forward. Similarly, a case study was carried out on the Port of Narvik in order to gain information regarding their logistic services and logistic challenges. Based on the results of the case study and literature review it was concluded that the Port of Narvik could improve their storage operations with a passive RFID system. It was also concluded that a passive RFID system would likely benefit other small- and medium sized ports in Northern Norway.
