This week you will discuss transportation and logistics management and its impact on various economic
activities. For example, how does transportation and logistics management impact a retailer getting their
product on the shelf? How does their distribution network affect their ability to generate revenue as well as
provide sustainability in their local economy? You will have to conduct online research to identify the
various economic activities in relation to TLM and within the context of the retail industry.
Discuss in detail and provide sources to support your thoughts, insights, ideas, and statements.
Complete this Discussion by providing a discussion of the economy and your project topic. How does the
economy affect your project topic? Is this effect beneficial or detrimental? Why? If beneficial, is there room
for improvement? If detrimental, what do you foresee as solutions?
