The logistics for supply chain in the United States is significantly more efficient than that of Mexico. In the United States the shoes are manufactured outside of the country where the labor and materials are cheaper. They are then shipped via water carriers in containers. Once the containers reach the ports here in the United States they must be searched to make sure contraband was not smuggled and that they meet all regulations. If regulations are violated the companies could face significant fines. The shoes are then shipped to distribution centers my either rail or motor carrier. At the distribution centers the management decides how many of each product will go to each retail location. Higher populated areas will obviously get the greatest number of any one product. However if retail managers feel than need more of a given product they can request through the distribution center. Distribution managers will then evaluate if the new order will be filled.

    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.
