You have received a report that your company’s new
Gazogle toy is outselling the company’s highest
expectation in the mid-west region. Store
managers in the mid-west are demanding another
shipment of Gazogle before the holiday season to
replenish their low inventory levels. As the
company’s logistic manager, you need to figure out

factories in China to Chicago. You must also ensure the toys
reach the mid-west stores prior to the holiday
season, which is 18 days away.
