Industry Competition And Price Sensitive Customer Trend
Problem 1: Industry Competition and Price Sensitive Customer Trend
Zappos business strategy is to differentiate itself amongst similar businesses by offering an
unparalleled customer service creating a "WOW" experience for its customers. This
strategy is an integral part of the organizational culture and is one of its core values. Each
and every member of the company is trained in customer service irrespective of their
business function and is equipped to provide their organization, suppliers and customers
with superior service. With e–commerce being a viable business option after the Internet
boom, a large number of companies have cropped up in the last decade creating intense
competition to capture market share. Some ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The disadvantages are customer switching/loss of
sale and internal cannibalization.
Alternative 2: The current feature of customer rating and product feedback is insufficient
to gain a competitive advantage. Zappos can adopt a strategy of creating a customized
search engine in collaboration with Google or Bing and create a price comparison tool that
lets customers compare Zappos price with other retailers and competitors, similar to
Kayak. Zappos using this feature can highlight its superior service advantage by displaying
an all–inclusive price for the product including shipping charges as compared to an
additional shipping charge displayed by its competitor. Zappos can also offer the lowest
shipping cost in the industry separately and develop it as a competitive edge.
Alternative 3: Another strategy that can be used is to create a vertical site that offers
authentic used products for skiing, surfing, skateboarding, furniture, home décor, cars etc.
at a low cost. This strategy helps Zappos cater to a customer segments that are extremely
price conscious. Low– mid income level customers should be the target audience. Zappos
could create a profitable business by offering high quality used products at a low cost to
this segment of the market.

The profit of exporters decreased significantly, because most Chinese exporters relied on the refund
of export tax to maintain their business under such fierce global competition at that time. To avoid
or reduce loss, exporters rushed to export their cargo before July 1st, which resulted in serious
overbooking in June and incurred a large demand of shipping capacity, accordingly, the price of
ocean freight per container sored to the highest in past ten years and many shipping companies made
additional orders to build new vessels. While, the next year, 2008, the global economy crisis broke
out, recession weakened the purchasing power of Europe dramatically; consequently, export from
China to Europe declined sharp. Freight dropped. Also large amount of shipping capacity became
free. It is probably the toughest time for container ocean freight industry. It is essential to analyze
the demand, price and revenue management in this industry.

They are actually quite different. With both of them providing different services within their niche. However for you to fully understand the differences, you must first know what each of them carry out on a day to day basis. Warehouses: Warehouses are buildings or structures which store goods. Normally for retail purposes. These goods are kept within the warehouse until the retailer in question needs them, either to stock their shelves or to provide them directly to their customers. You will find that large retailers such as Argos, own their own warehouses, while smaller independent retailers tend to go for a third party experience. This is because for most smaller retailers, the overhead costs of having their own warehouse is not feasible. However the same can be said for larger retail chains. For large retail changes it is not feasible to be paying a third party to store their goods. As they tend to have millions of units of products, which take up a lot of room. Warehouses tend to only ship to retailers. Rather than to individual customers, which makes their job comparatively easier compared to that of a distribution center.

It's the fact that I'm a privileged white male; I have no history. The only thing about me is that I'm different than everyone else. But isn't everybody? Many people say they're a cat in a dog world, a fish swimming among sharks. But the reality is that yes, you are different, but everybody else is too. You are unique; everybody is. Most would say I'm idiosyncratic, a stupidly complicated synonym for weird. I do the same things as everybody else, but in my own way. For instance, in elementary school, I read around 100 books, I used to knit, I can juggle, solve a rubik's cube and so much more. When I was around five to twelve years old, I made things nonstop. Whether it was an origami Darth Vader to a PVC bow and arrow. I did this whenever I had spare time. Sometimes whole days (2–7 hours) would be spent just making things. I would either go online and look up how to make something, or I would wing it and do it with no guidelines. I think I loved doing this so much because I hate being bored. The sounds of cutting and sanding, the smells of sawdust, the feel of polished wood, and the image of the finished project looming in your mind are all things I've come to love.

These decisions also affect the economy as they affect the global logistics network, especially when the economy is recovering from the recent financial crisis.

To cope with the market environment focusing on intense pricing pressure, shipping companies have started to cooperate in many forms, ranging from slot–chartering, vessel sharing, cargo sharing, strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions etc. The main reason for alliances is due to the need of cargo volumes in the scale of operation and to spread the risk associated with investment in the huge vessels. ...

To show the complexity of the modern economy, based on "The Travels of a T–Shirt in the Global Economy," Planet Money followed harvested cotton on its course from Mississippi through Indonesia to become fabric, and the fabric was shipped to either Bangladesh and Columbia to be printed, before finally arriving back in the United States in the form of a finished T–Shirt. On any day, consumption patterns depend upon many similar supply chains. As such, chances are fairly good that at some point in time, the product, or its components, moved on an international vessel.

To carry out this activity, we are constantly faced with the dilema of choosing the transportation mode that will reconcile effectiveness and efficiency. While keeping in mind the expectations of our clients, we must not forget our profit margins – which are the bases of our business sustainability.

The choice of carrier is determined by a series of factors such reliability, availability of equipment, regularity, price/rates etc Many at–times the most suitable thing we do is to put up a combination of several modes of transportation for the same trip. Usually we opt for the land transport mode (combining road and rail where possible) at the levels of pre–carriage and on–carriage, while choosing between maritime and air modes for the carriage (principal cross boarder journey). The choice between sea and air modes for the principal journey is done taking into consideration a number of factors such as nature and volume/weight of shipment, transit time, availability of infrastructures, geographical location etc. What ever change of mode is operated, it is important to note that goods remain in the same loading unit.

The airline industry has recently been focusing inwardly on revenue growth, yield management, and balance sheet strength. The permanent threat of terrorism creates an element of uncertainty when it comes to an airline company's operations. There are significant challenges to implement effective security and risk management systems. Large investments in required infrastructures are correlated to these challenges (PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 2014). There is also a strong demand for public transport recently as a result of environmental awareness and congestion. Railroads have difficulty meeting this demand because of a limited infrastructure capacity. This public transport competes with roads for investment funds and many planning processes for railroad projects take a long time to deliver (PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 2014).
