Abstract : This study evaluates the costs of the current operations to service the DSO Landover and DSO Cheatham chill and freeze customers vice consolidating the two facilities and servicing both sets of customers from the DSO Cheatham facility. The major cost elements analyzed were storage, handling and transportation costs. The results of the study conclude that the least costly alternative would be to remain with the status quo chill and freeze operations at both DSO Landover and DSO Cheatham. Due to the close proximity of the current two sets of customers to their respective DSOs and the long distance between the two DSOs (approx. 150 miles) the transportation costs to service the new customers make consolidation an expensive consideration....
