Abstract [en]

The intention with this research has been to investigate the reason why few Swedish shipping companies are founded on the market today. One major focus will be on the problems that occur when starting a shipping company in Sweden.

 

This is an important topic for future competitiveness in the maritime. Sweden used to be a leading maritime nation but not anymore. Though shipping transport carries 90% of Sweden´s export and import trade and also traded on the world market to a large extent. But still Sweden has lost its position as one of the leading maritime nations.

 

This paper is based upon the problem “Why are few start- ups in the Swedish shipping industry”? which is a recurring theme in the study.

 

This topic is greatly important since there are only a few studies covering the shipping company industry and minor reports similar to this paper. It is also a relevant topic for today´s society where we do import and export a lot of goods every day. Sweden used to be one of the leading shipping countries, but nowadays there are only few newly established shipping companies on the market. 

 

For this study a qualitative method with profound interviews has been made. This approach was chosen because the intention was to investigate into this problem formulation based on reality. Several interviews were implemented with different Swedish shipping companies. Where the intention was not to influence the informant rather the opposite, the intention was to gain information based on reality. The main task was to find some recurrent aspects regarding different problems that might occur when starting a shipping company.

 

The conclusion of this study is that there are some common problems that occur. Therefore there are some suggestions for improvement regarding maritime industry at the end of this paper.
