Honfleur Corporation’s Traffic Manager Archie Edwards sat down to review proposals that he had recently received from competing carriers. These quotes were for the inbound shipment of motors to the York PA plant operated by the Honfleur Corporation a manufacturer of major appliances. Among these was a proposal from the Northeastern Railroad to haul motors in intermodal containers from Honfleur’s supplier American Electric located in St. Louis MO to York at a rate of $7.50 per hundredweight with a 20000‐pound minimum on each shipment. A second offer was received from Trans‐Eastern Trucking Company to provide transportation service on the basis of a 10000‐pound shipment minimum at a rate of $8.50 per hundredweight. Both of these offers could be compared with Honfleur’s current practice of shipping motors via Banner Freightways on a sliding rate basis of $9.00 per hundredweight for shipments totaling less than 25000 pounds and $7.00 per hundredweight for weights from 25000 to 40000 pounds. Honfleur’s motors were purchased FOB St. Louis on the basis of an annual agreement calling for a minimum volume of 100000 motors at a price of $120 per motor. Currently Honfleur’s annual requirements were for approximately 120000 motors averaging about 10 pounds each in weight. Demand had been relatively stable for several years. During the past year Honfleur’s shipments had averaged 3000 motors each. It was estimated that unloading costs for the various carriers would be roughly the same. Honfleur’s warehouse in York could accommodate as many as 5000 motors. The company’s purchasing department estimated that the cost to process an order to American Electric was approximately $40 each including clerical and expediting costs. The Controller had estimated that the company’s annual cost of carrying inventory figured on the average value of product in inventory was 25% (including 15% for the average cost of money and the remaining 10% for the costs of insurance taxes and product obsolescence). Question: If Honfleur continues to order motors from American Electric at the current average quantity which carrier should Mr. Edwards select and what is the associated cost? If Honfleur’s buyers can adjust the order quantity to minimize total costs what should the order quantity be which carrier should Mr. Edwards select and how much would be saved when compared to current practice?
