Abstract

Nepal's unique geographical features, frequent political disturbances, strikes, a limited and complicated road network, frequent road breakdowns, government interventions as well as a volatile international oil market make the supply chain of Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) rather unique. We analyse different risks in the NOC supply chain and discuss what can be done to find inventory strategies that handle these risks without a particular focus on one specific scenario.
