Global supply chains (GSC) involve multiple stakeholders relying on public and private infrastructures run by an assortment of agencies. GSC development and operations require interactions between multiple agents collaborating efficiently and resolving conflicts equitably in a sustainable manner. Growth projections of supply chain infrastructure worldwide combined with expected goals in cost reduction and improved performance, predict that stakeholders involved in a development project will engage in multiparty negotiations to generate consensus for projects to move forward with wide support. This case simulates a multiparty negotiation for a 20-year infrastructure investment plan to convert a European city into global logistic hub. The target audience is practitioners in supply chain, operation managers, procurement officers, and MBA students needing to acquire skills and strategies to muster support for logistic infrastructure projects. The plan is presented with stakeholder positions on the project along with instructions for participants to develop a strategy to generate consensus.
