The Transportation Costs of Fresh Flowers: A Comparison between Ecuador and Major Exporting Countries
AbstractUsing a case study approach of Ecuador's supply chain, complemented by an empirical analysis of microdata on exports from major fresh flower exporting countries to the United States, this study confirms producers' claims that time and transportation costs vary widely across countries. The findings of this study indicate that in the Ecuadorian case, time reliability of the supply chain is not the norm.
