Supply Chain Management (100 points)

Al Baik must ship replacement parts for their ovens, and the supply chain manager must choose between two shipping alternatives: two-day freight, and five-day freight. Using five-day freight saves 750 Riyal (SAR), but the primary consideration is holding cost, which is 38 Riyal per unit per year. Al Baik must ship 2000 units. In a 4-5-page paper, which alternative would you recommend to the supply chain manager and why?

A supply chain manager is also responsible for properly calculating the profit or loss ratio for shipping their products and trying to earn and save as much money as possible. In this case, it is evident that for shipping the oven parts by Al Baik supply chain management there are mainly two alternative ideas one is two-day freight while another option is the five-day freight.
In this case, we can see that the holding cost for each of the oven items is 38 riyal. So for a bulk production, this holding cost in the inventory may lead to a huge expense for the company.
