The weight of the machine that ought to be transported is the biggest challenge that we face. According to the information retrieved from the ERP, the machine is a special backup electrical generator (1375KVA), which is 20ft containerized equipment. The weight and volume of the product is likely cause major predicaments when it comes to transporting it. However there are various strategies that we can employ to ensure we can effectively transport the cargo from Bitam in Indonesia to Santos basin in Brazil. However, for the latter process to occur various vital personnel are required to oversee the transportation of the generator. For instance, designers, consultants, supply engineers and purchasing officers. The generator can only be efficiently transported to Bitam through repackaging. This can only occur via the use of proper personnel who can break down the machine in smaller pieces and reduce the weight and airlift the product. This means will reduce the risk of any hitches cropping up during transportation of the product to the required destination.On the other hand the containerized equipment can be transported in its current state. This would demand more space in the airplanes cargo hall and more personnel to aid in man power. Breaking down the machinery would allow for parts that can be replaced at its destination to be discarded allowing for sustainable carriage through reduced weight and progressively cost.The distance that ought to be covered while transporting the machinery as well as the personnel to control it will also be a major barrier to my firm. The distance from Batam in Indonesia to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is about 17750.42 kilometers which translates to about 18hour flight. This distance is too great to transport a bulky good such as the generator in an express flight. In addition the required personnel who will put the generator into use effectively is located in Korea which is also quite a distance from Santos Basin in Brazil. However, for effective transport of the particular machine to the intended customer, various cost effective decisions ought to be taken by all stakeholders. For instance, in this case my firm will repackage the generator to smaller sizes and transport them in various airplanes to ensure that they reach the intended destination on time. The latter aspect will enable the product to be transported in express airlines direct to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.Lack of adequate
