MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 1 of 17 Transport Management (BUSS B 3001) Spring 2021–CW 1(Assignment 1) Session A,B,C,D&E-QP Task 2 [90 marks] Case Study MAKABEH S.A.O.G. is a company based in Thumrait (Oman) that makes mechanical components for trucks. The production and storage are both based in Thumrait. It has just received an order from a multinational to start a mass-production of all the front brakes of a new model truck that is about to be launched. According to the tender, MAKABEH S.A.O.G. must supply 1200 brake units a day (600 correspond to part code PS3476FRT543789DR, for the right front wheels of the vehicle and 600 correspond to part code PS3476FRT543789IZ for the left front wheels). The weight of these brake units is 14.5 kgs each (incl. box). The goods must be supplied each working day from Saturday to Thursday in the factory that the multinational has in Thumrait, Oman. The initial duration of the contract is set at one year (in other words, 249 deliveries). Once the brakes have been manufactured, they are packed in reusable parallelepiped plastic boxes adapted to the component, with a lid, and outside dimensions of 30 x 40 x 25 cm (the last measurement corresponds to the height). Each box can hold a complete set of brake equipment. Independently of the labelling, the boxes are yellow or orange corresponding to the right or the left wheel, to make it easy to work with in logistics and sales. The boxes will be stacked on wooden pallets (europallets) measuring 120 x 80 x 15 cm. The weight of the pallets is 10 kgs per pallet. The boxes are stacked in layers separated by a 6mm thick sheet of plywood 120 cm x 80 cm x 0.6 cm thick. The pallets may not be stacked on top of each other. Once the pallet is fully loaded, it is wrapped. The weight of both foil and sheets is negligible. The maximum height of the pallets is limited to 150 cm since this is the size of the space for pallets in their dynamic shelves in the MAKABEH S.A.O.G. warehouse. However, MAKABEH S.A.O.G. has a problem in achieving this major contract: the production plant in Thumrait is not equipped to perform the hardening treatment required by all the brakes and has to subcontract this operation to another company. There is a company in Saudi Arabia called FARAMIL that can apply this treatment in Medina, Saudi Arabia. MAKABEH and FARAMIL have already reached a pre-agreement by which the amount of the product required every day will be delivered to the factory designated for treatment and will then be returned duly treated after two days to be repacked and palletised in the same conditions as when it was delivered. The Logistics Manager of MAKABEH is prepared to organise the transport MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 2 of 17 Transport Management (BUSS B 3001) Spring 2021–CW 1(Assignment 1) Session A,B,C,D&E-QP in light of the operating conditions. To do this, he has contacted different logistics service providers and has asked them to bid for the contract. The logistics operator must collect the product every day at MAKABEH and transport them to the FARAMIL plant in Medina (Saudi Arabia) and collect the treated product there to take it back to Thumrait (Oman). In addition, the logistic manager of MAKABEH S.A.O.G. will take along the winning logistics operator to help him to convince the multinational of the logistical viability of the process. By MAKABEH accepted modes of transport The following modes of transport are available for this concept:  Airlines  Shortsea  Road transport Airlines: There is a daily flight from Salalah (Oman) to Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) v.v. what is also open for transport of cargo. The service will be executed by a Boeing 787 what can carry ULD’s types LD4 and LD11. Shortsea: There is a daily ferry service between Salalah (Oman to Jeddah) Saudi Arabia v.v. what is open for containers and Ro-Ro. (non-dangerous goods). Closing time for acceptation the container before departure is 6h. The sailing distance is 1300Nm. Road: The current situation in Yemen is not stable. Waiting time at the borders is from 6-48 hours but can change rapidly. During the nights it is unsafe to drive outside cities. MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 3 of 17 Transport Management (BUSS B 3001) Spring 2021–CW 1(Assignment 1) Session A,B,C,D&E-QP Other data for the exercise: Containers: The weights of the containers are:     20ft container 2.5 tons 40ft container 4.0 tons LD4 n.a. max payload is excl. container weight LD11 n.a. max payload is excl. container weight Measure of the containers: All containers either ISO or standardized. Road transport: The maximum tons we can transport in both Saudi Arabia and Oman by road is 32 tons. The weight of the truck is   With container chassis: With aluminium semi-trailer + chassis: 13 tons 15 tons In case of intermodal transport both Oman and Saudi Arabia accept 10% (3 tons) extra gross weight within road transport.
