Paper Title:
Empirical Study on Ordering Policy for Multi-Products in Fresh Food Supply Chains
  Abstract

Food supply chain is a complex process. The author develops a model that will provide both researchers and practitioners with a means of determining the optimal ordering policy for multi-products in fresh food supply chain. By using computer simulation. this paper conduct for a numerical analysis to the ordering policy of products of a food company in Hubei province to analyze the properties of total cost functions under each of the six different ordering policies and proposes an approximate optimal ordering policy of multiple products. Based on the models and analysis, it is found that agglomeration effect plays an important role in determine ordering policy of multiple products.
