|OMGT2222: Transportation and Freight Logistics|
Assessment name: Transportation PlanWhy this task?
The aim of this assessment task is to assess the extent to which you have understood and internalized knowledge regarding the structures, processes, systems, challenges, and opportunities in freight transportation and how well you can translate this knowledge into a practical business situation. It requires you to critically examine not just the systems and processes but the context within which they occur.
What do I need to do?
You will ‘establish’ a commercial company in Singapore with a major client in an overseas country. You use this company to represent your knowledge of the complexity of international freight transportation operations through a Transportation Plan. You are required to:
- Create a clear identity for your organization, including its commercial activities, locations of core operations, & a key product involved; and the location of your overseas major client,
- Clearly propose at least three (03) quotations, in which a specific Incoterms 2020 will be used in each quotation, for your client to import your company’s product into their destination with discussing the roles, responsibilities, costs for each business participant (your company and the client) for every quotation, and stating the reasons what quotation you prefer,
- Clearly map out the alternative freight transportation routes for each quotation,
- Collect data of cost and time for a detailed comparative analysis of the alternative routes and suggest the best route(s) for each quotation.
