2.When comparing performance during the first five months of 2013 with performance in2012, which warehouse shows the poorest change in performance? 3. When comparisons are made among all eight warehouses, which one do you think doesthe best job for the Brant company? What criteria did you use? Why? 2012. Denver was the second warehouse with higher costs after Fargo, but we must consider that Denver closed by strike earlier in 2012 without completing the period of five months.
Brant Freezer Case 3 I used the per unit cost criterion because it is an important metric to determine how much does it cost to have a unit in a warehouse. Warehousing costs are extremely important for a firm because they can directly affect the profit margin. If warehousing costs rise too much, maybe it is time to consider new alternatives that can lower those costs in order to remain competitive.
