delivers the water for $30 per container via an externalshipper. In order to reduce costs, the

$20 each, delivered to Crush Company's shipping division in Missouri. The company's Shipping
Division inMissouri has excess capacity and can ship the 30,000 containers at a variable cost of
$2.50 per container.
