Replacement Parts

Question 1

Al Baik (Fast Food Chain in Saudi Arabia) must ship replacement parts for their ovens, and the supply chain manager must choose between two shipping alternatives: two-day freight, and five-day freight. Using five-day freight saves 750 Riyal (SAR), but the primary consideration is holding cost, which is 38 Riyal per unit per year. Al Baik must ship 2000 units. In a 4-page paper, which alternative would you recommend to the supply chain manager and why?

Be sure to use at least three current, scholarly references beyond any required course readings. Current sources are those published within the most recent five-year period, and scholarly sources are those from peer-reviewed journals.

Make certain for each listed reference that you have at least one supporting citation in the body of your content. Your reference page is always the last page of the submission where all individual references get listed.

Question 2

  1. In a two page report (12 pt font, double-spaced), research and discuss your findings regarding the role of motor carriers and advances made in the 21st century from an economic development point of view and the major issues motor carriers are facing today, that includes factors in safety, technology, LTL rates, financial stability, etc. Provide possible solutions. Substantiate your answer with examples and provide references.
  2. In contrast to the motor carrier industry, discuss how the cost structure of the railroad industry is different. In terms of pricing, competitiveness, and investment, discuss the impact these differences have for the railroad industry.
