Abstract

GROBLER, J.  and  YADAVALLI, V.S.S.. Managing the cold chain: A case study at a South African ice cream company. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.2, pp. 17-39. ISSN 1012-277X.

This paper documents the results of a supply chain management (SCM) case study conducted at Centurion Ice Cream and Sweets CC, a producer of ice cream in the greater Gauteng area. The current SCM environment was first analyzed before the distribution function was identified as a prime candidate for further analysis. A Monte Carlo simulation was subsequently performed to investigate the effect of different distribution scenarios. The paper concludes with an investigation into information technology (IT) as the enabler for improved supply chain performance.
