Abstract

Theoretical inventory models with constant demand rate and two transportation modes are analyzed in this paper. The transportation options are truckloads with fixed costs, a package delivery carrier with a constant cost per unit, or using a combination of both modes simultaneously. Exact algorithms for computing the optimal policies are derived for single stage models over both an infinite and a finite planning horizon.
