David Morgan, their most recently hired talent, is in charge of reviewing the costs related to one of their biggest clients, Moonbucks, an Australian chain of coffeehouses. Moonbucks’ annual demand of coffee is normally distributed with an average of 881 containers and standard deviation of 147 containers. One container of coffee is worth \$60 thousands of dollars. The company’s holding charge is 18% per year and the company includes the transportation cost when calculating inventory costs. It costs \$1.7 thousands of dollars to process the required paperwork to export the goods, independently of the volume shipped. The company’s cycle service level target is 95%.
David noticed that Global Coffee has been exporting through the port of Santos and wants to compare if exporting through the port Rio Grande could reduce costs. It takes on average 1.7 months to transport the coffee from Santos to Moonbucks in Australia through the port of Santos. The total transportation cost of this route is \$4.5 thousands of dollars per container. Similarly, it takes 2.1 months to ship the coffee through the port of Rio Grande. The transportation cost of this route is \$4 thousands of dollars per container. In both scenarios the company would ship an economic order quantity of containers. Global Coffee owns the coffee until it is delivered at the Moonbucks premises.
