calculating annual transportation cost
Calculating Annual Transportation Cost
  • Volume transportation rates: reduced rate applies to the entire shipment
  • Annual transportation cost = (freight rate per unit) x (annual demand in units)
    • F = freight rate per unit
    • FD = annual transportation cost
slide3
Many carriers (notably LTL motor carriers and railroads) quote transportation rates in $ per hundred pounds, or $ per cwt
    • Convert units to cwts or freight rate per cwt to freight rate per unit; we will convert the freight rate
    • Divide the freight rate per cwt by the number of units in a cwt; number of units in a cwt is 100/unit weight in pounds

Example: freight rate per cwt = $30; weight per unit = 15 pounds; freight rate per unit = $30/(100/15) = $4.50 per cwt

calculating the annual in transit inventory cost
Calculating the Annual In-transit Inventory Cost
  • Annual in-transit inventory cost =

(annual in-transit inventory level in units)

x

(average value per unit of inventory)

x

(the cost of carrying in-transit inventory expressed as a percentage of investment in in-transit inventory)

slide5
Two new variables:
    • I = opportunity cost of capital = cost of carrying in-transit inventory (%)
    • T = average transit time (in days)
annual in transit inventory level
Annual in-transit inventory level =

(Q units in in-transit inventory each shipment)

x

(number of days in transit as percentage of a year, or T/365)

x

(number of shipments per year, or D/Q) =

(Q) x (T/365) x (D/Q) = DT/365

slide7
Average value of inventory per unit = V
  • Cost of carrying in-transit inventory = I
  • Thus, annual in-transit inventory cost = DTVI/365
slide8
New and improved annual T.L.C.:

.5QVC + PD/Q + FD +DTVI/365

Note: taking derivative, setting equal to zero, and solving for Q results in EOQ equation (because ‘Q’ does not show up in annual transportation cost and annual in-transit inventory cost expressions)

  • Thus, we need to compare T.L.C. at EOQ volume and at Q values greater than EOQ volume where transportation freight rate discounts are offered.
