Managing the Supply Chain Module 3 Case

2-3 sentence introduction. Major companies make different decisions regarding logistics in order to optimize supply chain functions; a few create in-house solutions, franchises, some move forward via acquisition while third-party sourcing or partnerships is more appealing to others.

Consumers expect deliveries fast: next day, same day even one or two hours but don’t want to pay (extra) for the service. Companies are working on fulfillment and logistics solutions to meet demands of the marketplace. Last mile delivery is becoming a large part of the process. What technology/software supports the processes for chain members including the end consumer?

Begin with the case background readings to learn about logistics trends. Then move to expert or consultant publications written within the last three years.

Delivery strategy #1

Provide a well-balanced assessment of what is required in omni-channel supply chains according to the readings and information from at least three experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include four different strategies for delivery (other than drones/automated vehicles, etc. which are addressed in this module’s SLP). One delivery method must include bricks and mortar or warehouse delivery while a second needs to be last-mile focused. This section should be 1 page in length. Research Required. NOTE: no resources should be more than three years old for this case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Delivery strategy #2

Provide a well-balanced assessment of what is required in omni-channel supply chains according to the readings and information from at least three experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include four different strategies for delivery (other than drones/automated vehicles, etc. which are addressed in this module’s SLP). One delivery method must include bricks and mortar or warehouse delivery while a second needs to be last-mile focused. This section should be 1 page in length. Research Required. NOTE: no resources should be more than three years old for this case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Delivery strategy #3

Provide a well-balanced assessment of what is required in omni-channel supply chains according to the readings and information from at least three experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include four different strategies for delivery (other than drones/automated vehicles, etc. which are addressed in this module’s SLP). One delivery method must include bricks and mortar or warehouse delivery while a second needs to be last-mile focused. This section should be 1 page in length. Research Required. NOTE: no resources should be more than three years old for this case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Delivery strategy #4

Provide a well-balanced assessment of what is required in omni-channel supply chains according to the readings and information from at least three experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include four different strategies for delivery (other than drones/automated vehicles, etc. which are addressed in this module’s SLP). One delivery method must include bricks and mortar or warehouse delivery while a second needs to be last-mile focused. This section should be 1 page in length. Research Required. NOTE: no resources should be more than three years old for this case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Technology linkages

The final section of the case must include a well-researched discussion of technology links (software, programs, etc.) that ensure transparency and control within the chain. This section should be 1 page in length. Research Required. NOTE: no resources should be more than three years old for this case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like “I”, “we”, and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person. The excessive use of quotes or unoriginal content will directly impact performance since it suggests lack of comprehension and indicates that a student may not have mastered the concepts.

Conclusion

This is your 2-3 sentence conclusion. Remember this is the last thing your reader will hear. Your submission will include:

  • Trident University International’s cover page
  • The body will be 5-6 pages with APA citations (2-3 sentence introduction, body, 2-3 sentence conclusion)
  • The alphabetized reference list page in APA format
