Case Article ---Keeping Logistics Under Wraps
This paper describes a teaching case that integrates logistics network design with an ethical decision-making process. The ethical issues center on a proposed network design strategy for parcel transportation known as zone skipping , whose implementation in this setting would require the disguising of the identity of freight. The paper describes the case, discusses its pedagogical goals and provides some recommendations for using the case successfully in a logistics or optimization course. Case Teaching Note: Interested Instructors please see the Instructor Materials page for access to the restricted materials. To maintain the integrity and usefulness of cases published in ITE , unapproved distribution of the case teaching notes and other restricted materials to any other party is prohibited.
