Exercise 3 Introduction Push and pull are strategic supply chain decisions can that are as a results of the impacts of operational, product and demand related variables (Wanker and Zinn, 2004). The push strategy moves products based on planning or forecasting whereas the pull strategy moves products as a results of real demand (Ballou, 1992). Thus in a push system, the products are pushed through the supply chain channel right from production to the retailer.

Even though it is more difficult logistically to combine five different orders onto one truck, if you can the profits increase. This idea makes it more alluring for individuals to start an LTL trucking company, and if they focus on small scale deliveries the price of trucks becomes reasonable enough that it makes sense for some
