Queuing at eCycle Services

Book Description

This new supply chain management case study examines the challenges faced by a leading recycling business in efficiently unloading city trailers that deliver electronic waste. eCycle faces stiff fines if it cannot unload trailers on a timely basis, yet it must handle growing volume without compromising workplace safety--all while remaining profitable. Addressing critical queuing concepts in a real-world environment, this case study offers exceptional value to both supply chain students and practitioners.
