Mårten Fristedt

Assistant Lecturer

Most of my time is spent on teaching within the logistics, supply chain management and purchasing areas. My research evolves around purchasing and purchasing organisations, particularly hybrid purchasing organisations in global industrial companies.

Logistics management and Purchasing organisations 

As an assistant lecturer I spend significant part of my time teaching. I am seminar leader and supervisor in many of the division's courses. To name a few - Basic Logistics, Supply Chain Logistics, Logistics Analysis, Logistics Project and Master theses. I also do guest appearances in, for example, the division's course within Purchasing. Purchasing is also connected to my research.

My research is within the area of hybrid purchasing organisations. In particular, I study the balance between the many advantages one can draw from a centralised purchasing structure and the benefits provided by having a decentralised structure. The research is conducted through case studies performed at large Swedish industrial companies.
