Palander became an engineer at the Royal College of Technology in Stockholm, before studying economics at Stockholm University. He published his dissertation Beiträge zur Standortstheorie (Contributions to Location Theory) in 1935. He was appointed Professor of Economics at the Business School of Gothenburg in 1941 and at Uppsala University in 1947. The dissertation is a standard reference in location theory; it was never published in English, though a Japanese edition was published in 1984.
