Executive summaries of IIE Transactions and IIE Transactions on Occupational Ergonomics and Human Factors 

Edited by Ronald Askin and Ling Rothrock

This month we highlight two articles focusing on logistics. The first article addresses the use of regional 3PL services for delivering periodic orders from warehouses to retail outlets. A mutually agreeable fee table is needed for pricing deliveries. The second article looks at routing pickups and deliveries in the nonprofit sector where a food bank wants to distribute donations to its client agencies equitably and at minimum distribution cost. These articles will appear in the December 2014 issue of IIE Transactions (Volume 46, No. 12).
