PROPOSAL FOR FINAL PROJECT
This is my answer to the Week 5 which is the starting week for the Module Three Final Project. I will be using diverse sources of knowledge and information including real life experience, text books, class discussions, journals and publications both hard copy; and where available and on the internet.

I will most likely pick question one of the five provided, “Explain the nature of the business and the special problems and challenges it poses for logistics”.
