In this webinar, we elaborate more on the Transportation Chain, a generic building block to describe transportation operations throughout the Supply Chain.
The Transportation Chain starts where the goods originate (e.g. production) and ends at the final destination (e.g. store, customer, etc.). Figure 1 depicts the Transportation Chain deconstructed into three parts: the Pickup Chain (or the first mile), the Transit Chain and the Delivery Chain (or the last mile). In each part of the Transportation Chain an operator (e.g. LSP, shipper, etc.) is active. Note that this could also be a single integrated operator throughout the chain.
