3 Section I: Introduction Currently, the company at hand has all the production and distribution of coolers out of a facility on the East Coast. This company has had challenges reaching the customers on the West Coast as a result of the high freight rates, due low density of the product. Therefore, the company is looking to expand to a Distribution Center. One of the major benefits of distribution centers are that the delivery time is also reduced significantly using a distribution center. Distribution centers also helps to extract value from goods through quick response to changing demand, customer preferences, pricing and supply. By creating a distribution center, the company will be able to reduce the time of delivery of products to the consumer, thus resulting in more sales and profits.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
