Need is for the Capstone project team to evaluate countries and regions for their potential to supply product lines merchandised at FND. New vendors will need to produce the product to FND specifications but also be able to ship it reliably and cost effectively. FND is looking for an evaluation of countries and regions - what are advantages to a certain country and region and what are the complexities across all FND product lines.
