Rachel can save a few hundred dollars each week by using a few routes that involve intermediate points. However, this cost analysis fails to consider the actual physical risks of dealing with potentially hazardous industrial waste. The dropping off and picking up of waste at intermediate sites may cause a time delay, which may impact the risk of the waste becoming a potential hazard. Also, the additional handling of the waste associated with loading and unloading at intermediate sites may cause increased risk of a problem. Even though Polychem has agreed to handle the wastes at no additional cost, there may be additional risk that has not been evaluated. In summary, a cost savings would be one factor to consider in a more complete analysis of all the risk factors involved in evaluating the use of intermediate locations for the shipping routes.
