This research is based on the Supply Chain and covers Operations Management Perspective. Discussed below are how choices made at the Primary level of organizations affect operations and production. This study further goes on to describe how Transport Management as one of the key factors in operations, aid in getting a continuous flow in operational processes and in turn an increase in production levels. Factors such as communication, EDI implementations, warehousing and order fulfilment are extensively discussed as constituents of Transport Management. The relevance and consequences of the aforementioned factors are discussed to show the reader why and how they relate to Transport Management and ultimately to operations and production.


This paper has discussed supply chain processes necessary for success, namely: order fulfillment, warehousing, transportation, and EDI Implementations. Our findings blended a list of causes, effects, and solutions to provide insight to organizations as to how production processes can be handled and how a unified system can be achieved. As aforementioned in today's rapidly increasing competitive markets, customers' expectations and demands, as well as an understanding of the organization’s current performance, can provide companies with an upper hand in their respective markets. The problem is not doing the wrong things, it is doing the right things the wrong way.


Key words: Transport Management, EDI Implementation, Communication, Order fulfilment, Transportation Modes and Operations and Production
