document a list of the set of functions in the Cargo Management System that would be needed in order for management to evaluate options and opportunities that arise within the above scenario

In recent years, sea-ice melting has enabled arctic routing of vessels (the so-called “Northwest Passage”) to begin on more predictable and practical schedules. Likewise, the widening of the Panama Canal has enabled larger vessels to transit that isthmus, providing additional options for moving cargo between Caribbean and Pacific waters. These developments have opened competitive opportunities that make previous decisions on terminal locations, vessel types, trip schedules, and pricing somewhat obsolete. Management wants to be able to evaluate, model, and redevelop overall strategies for our cargo business to take major changes like these into account.

For this assignment, document a list of the set of functions in the Cargo Management System that would be needed in order for management to evaluate options and opportunities that arise within the above….

What have been the challenges and opportunities for foreign companies in establishing collaborative arrangements in China

1-CASE 1 Understanding Entry modes into the Chinese market

China became a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) on December 11, 2001 and is currently in the process of completing a seven-year transitional period.

3- IKEA CATALOGUE

Are there any cultural differences?

www.ikea.com

The catalog serves as a pre-shopping advertisement, an in-store sales aid and an interior

decorating guide. Many consumers shop with the catalog in hand. Since the catalog is such an

important marketing tool, it is crucial for it to accurately reflect the colour and appearance of

IKEA products, also in local cultural circumstances.

The globalization strategy developed by IKEA is a home-based strategy built around a Swedish

concept calling for furniture that is clean, modern, efficient, functional, sustainable and

competitive pricing. The product is not adapted to local markets during the globalization
