Module 5 – Case
LOGISTICS DESIGN ALTERNATIVES
For this case please read the background articles and do some additional research to discuss in a 3-4 page paper the following:
How important is intermodal transportation with respect to global logistics? How do supply chains get more complicated when firms are doing business across borders versus domestically?
Research the topic with information from the background readings as well as any other resources you find on your own. The paper should be 3-4 pages in length and have a cover sheet and a reference page. Clarity of presentation is important, as well as your ability to cover the topic in a succinct, organized manner with research to back up your points. Use at least 3 different sources of information and annotate your sources of information appropriately on your references page and within the text as necessary. You will be assessed on how well you demonstrate your understanding of intermodal transportation and apply the concepts to a global environment. Submit your assignment for grading by the end of this module.
