Changing of Transportation Cost for Furniture Exports from China to the United States Widiyanto, Dwi

Abstract

Transportation cost is one of the most crucial elements in the manufacturing process. Furniture companies try to reduce their production costs to generate higher profit. One method of reducing production cost is by using cheap labor from developing countries such as China. Globalization and global recession play important role in affecting transportation cost. With the increase in transportation cost from China to the United States, many companies have begun to search for alternative methods to mitigate this problem.
