Analysis of NAVADS Small Parcel Shipping Policy
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
NSC San Diego stocks material and spare parts essential to support both the support activities and the operating forces. To fulfill this responsibility, NSC San Diego employs various shipping methodologies to get the required materials to customers, and it attempts to do this at the lowest possible cost. This thesis focuses on the small parcel shipping policy that governs the determination of the mode of shipment. The shipping factors analyzed are the small parcel package routing policy, the interface of NAVADS and NISTARS in mode-of shipment determination, and the cost savings that have occurred by manually overriding the NAVADS recommendations.
