Transportation Evaluation

The
goal of this assignment is to help you review the different types of
transportation in a format that most of you are familiar with. This
assignment will also help you determine how companies make decisions
regarding routing, mode of transportation, and timing.

Select an Express Delivery firm that is active in the United
States and explain how their transportation network is set up. In
detail, I would like you to take a look at one shipment and analyze how
the transportation company managed the delivery of the product from
origin to destination.

Please complete the following:

  1. Calculate the distances and time between the locations mentioned on the tracking statement.
  2. Identify the role that each leg of the journey plays (e.g. pick-up, line haul, delivery, etc.).
  3. Identify the mode of transportation that is likely used.
  4. Explain the routing between origin and destination (e.g. how much of a straight line between origin and destination).
  5. Analyze the efficiency of the routing (e.g. why the company likely chose this routing).
  6. Express any areas of difficulty.
  7. Reflect on what you learned in this assignment.

If you do not have access to a tracking statement, please use one of the two below:
