Abstract

In today's competitive business world, companies face the crucial task of delivering goods on time. In order to benefit from high volumes, distributors (suppliers) try to consolidate deliveries while maintaining a high percentage of on time delivery. Increasing delivery frequencies typically increases suppliers' performance, but it also increases the transportation costs. Finding a suitable middle ground is a challenge confronting many companies throughout various supply chains. This dissertation is a study about the coordination of inventory and transportation decisions in a two-stage supply chain.
