Based on the successes of your company, your Denver-based bottled water company is now a Fortune 100 producer within the United States. The company has
decided to go global targeting Canada, Mexico, and China. Currently, you have central warehouse sites in three distinct domestic regions (Eastern, Central, and Western).
You have awarded supply chain contracts to many local, as well as interstate, organizations. None of your current partners has the ability to deliver outside of the United States.
They are, however, able to deliver to key border cities.
Prepare a 1,750 to 2,450 word global considerations report which will be used to discuss and examine the advantages and disadvantages of becoming a global enterprise.
Include the following in your report:
A brief overview describing the current logistics network given in this scenario and how your team would transition that network to a global supply chain. Be creative and
design both the current and future networks as your team wishes to maximize the logistics efficiencies available.
An analysis on the ethical and legal considerations in logistics management, both within the domestic United States and internationally
An analysis on the impact of exchange rate fluctuations on the supply chain given global distribution
Identification, and further examination, of the importance of cultural considerations when negotiating supply chain contracts in a global environment
