Trucking companies no longer merely carry goods from one place to another. Some also provide supply chain management services to their customers and help them manage their information. In this project you’ll use the Web to research and evaluate two of these business services.
Investigate the Web sites of two companies, J. B. Hunt and Schneider Logistics, to see how these companies’ services can be used for supply chain management. Using the information found in those sites as well as your own outside research, create an essay in which you answer the following questions:
What supply chain processes can each of these companies support for their clients?
How can customers use the Web site of each company to help them with supply chain management?
Compare the supply chain management services provided by these companies. Which company would you select to help your firm manage its supply chain? Why?
