AbstractUsing a case study approach of Ecuador's supply chain this presentation discusses exports dynamics from major fresh flower exporting countries. The document covers air transportation's importance, air cargo of perishables and fresh-flowers, and a discussion on supply chain's complexity, quality deterioration cost and airfreight cost. Finally a series of conclusions are drawn. This presentation was created for the Latin America/Caribbean and Asia/Pacific Economics and Business Association (LAEBA)'s 4th Annual Meeting held in Lima, Peru, on June 17th, 2008.
