Research on Consignment Stores. There is a great body of research dealing with consignment policies, consignment stores, and consignment strategies.
This result indicates the scientific potential of this research field including the problems of supply chain, consignment stores, and heuristic optimization.
The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of location of consignment stores on the performance of the whole supply chain.
