Logistics Management
• Inbound flows: logistics managers work with supply
managers to ensure flows of materials meet firm’s
operational requirements
• Internal flows: logistics managers and other
functions within the firm work to ensure timely and
correct flows of information, products, and
materials internally, within and across the firm’s
facilities

Consolidation
Consolidation: one large shipment made of many
smaller shipments
• By market area: combine small shipments from
one shipper going to the same area
• Pooled delivery: combine small shipments from
different shippers going to the same area
• Scheduled delivery: delivery at specific times

Consolidation or Not—Example (1 of 2)
Example 11-1
A firm has orders of 12,000 lbs each of goods for
three customers. It is $15.75 per hundredweight
(cwt) to ship direct, or $10.50 per cwt for
shipments of greater than 30,000 lbs with a
$300 fee for each stop.
Should the firm consolidate the orders into one
shipment?

No reproduction or distribution without the prior written
11-15 consent of McGraw-Hill Education.
Consolidation or Not—Example (2 of 2)
Example 11-1
Cost of individual shipments:
$15.75 × (12,000/100) = $15.75 × 120 cwt = $1,890
total for all three shipments = 3 × $1,890 = $5,670
Consolidated shipments:
$10.50 × (36000/100) = $10.50 × 360 cwt = $3,780
including stop charge = 3 × $300 + $3780 = $4,680
Saving with consolidation = $5,670 − $4,680 = $990

Learning Objective 11-3
Transportation Mode Selection
In order to decide which mode of transportation to use to
ship an order, consider:
• Speed
– the elapsed time required to move from the point of origin to
destination
• Availability
– the ability to service any possible location
• Dependability
– the variance in the expected delivery times
• Capability
– the ability to handle any type of product and/or size of load
• Frequency
– the number of scheduled movements that can be arranged by a
shipper

Learning Objective 11-3
Trucking Industry: Three Segments
• Truckload (TL)
– carriers generally carry only full trailers of freight
– trucks can be routed directly from the shipper to the
customer
• Less-than-truckload (LTL)
– carriers usually move loads of less than 15,000 pounds
– carriers experience relatively higher fixed costs because of
the need to stop at a terminal for load consolidation
– typically pay higher marketing costs because they want to
generate full loads
– dominated by a few large carriers
• Specialty carriers
– include package haulers such as FedEx and United Parcel
Service (UPS)

Carrier Types
Value Density: ratio of value to weight, often
determines the type of carrier used
• Common: provide service to the public with
published rates
• Contract: provide service only to select,
contracted customers
• Private: firm owns its own equipment

Transportation Service Selection (2 of 3)
Example 11-2
A firm must ship a 10-lb parcel of 30 items valued at
$500 each a distance of 1,000 miles. Transportation
options are 8-day ground for $50 or 2-day air for
$90. Holding cost is 20 percent of product value.
How should the firm ship its product?

No reproduction or distribution without the prior written
11-24 consent of McGraw-Hill Education.
Transportation Service Selection (3 of 3)
Example 11-2
Total cost = In-transit holding cost + Freight cost
In-transit holding cost = days in transit/365 × Shipment
value × Annual inventory carrying cost percentage
Ground:
= [(8 days/365) × $15,000 × .2] + $50.00 = $115.74
Air:
= [(2 days/365) × $15,000 × .2] + $90 = $106.44

best choice?

Materials Handling and Packaging
• Handling material increases costs and risk of
damage

Logistics Network Design
• Logistics network design determines:
– Number and location of operations facilities
– How customers will be served
– Where inventory will be held
– Which transportation modes will be used
• Cost-to-service trade-off: as service levels increase,
typically so do costs
• Cost-to-cost trade-off: increasing the cost of one
logistics activity reduces the cost another
• Total landed cost: sum of all product- and logisticsrelated costs
– Country costs of manufacturing
– Cost in transit to country of sale
– Cost within country of sale

• Managers need to develop a location
strategy that minimizes a product’s total
landed cost
• Total landed cost: the sum of all productand logistics-related costs
– Costs within each country of manufacture
– Costs in transit from country of manufacture to
country of sale
– Costs within the country of sale

1. There are straight-line distances between all
