This report is the result of a questionnaire survey done in cooperation with the company Sydved and their contractors. The investigation concerned all their ordinary contractors. The main goal with the study was to find out the contractors opinion about the current cooperation conditions with Sydved, their opinion about the future and how to improve the cooperation. All contractors got a questionnaire to fill in and return within a given date. The percentage of answers was 48 % at the first stage and further 11 % answered after reminder. The result of the investigation indicated that the contractors in general have a positive attitude to Sydved and the way that the company acts. The "contractors' web site" concept is highly accepted and appreciated, although they point out some necessary improvements. The main weak point seems to be that the purchasers do not continuously put in comprehensive contract documentation for the job area in time before the job is going to start. Lack of information or late information can easily result in a poor job result. According to the contractors opinion another area of great importance is communication and feedback. 65 % of them agreed on this statement and among these, 37 % stated that the responsible contact person/purchaser should always follow up a completed contract. The majority of the contractors believes in bigger machines in the future that are capable of giving better comprehensive services and as many as 54 % would be willing to invest in new machinery if the conditions were okay. Most decisive will be an improved profitability and the availability of competent machine operators. In general most of the contractors have the opinion that Sydved must listen more to the forest owners' point of view in order to improve the confidence and improve the conditions for better business opportunities in the future. Based upon the contractors answers there is a general optimism for the future cooperation, provided that Sydved work hard to solve those problem areas pointed out in this report.
