Each student will develop an individual project that analyzes a transportation, logistics or distribution issues relevant to the course material by conducting independent research over the duration of the course. This project will afford students the opportunity to consider topics discussed in class in the context of the role of distribution within a company’s supply chain. Each student will submit the project report at the end of the course.

All project papers should include the following sections: a) Introduction: List the objective of the paper and scope of your analysis. b) Body: This includes the main sections of your paper. Make sure that your paper is analytical rather than just descriptive. c) Conclusion: Discuss your conclusions as well as suggestions for future research. d) References: List all the references you used in your paper. e) Appendix sections: Tables, annual reports, statistics, and other relevant information.
