Abstract: Under the pressures of global competition, response to changes in evolving international transport from processing and marketing system. Enterprises are forced to pace their supply according to the requirements of customers. Many enterprises attempt to manage their supply chain effectively. The international transportation of the products, which involved in valuable goods, may cause the happening of transportation risk. Therefore, this study explores the feasibility of applying an integrated inventory model with the consideration of incorporating production programs and maintenance to an imperfect process. We also consider the transportation risk between manufacturers, suppliers and retailers, building a two-echelon inventory and transportation risk model.
