How to calculate total delivery cost?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate a total delivery cost.

First, determine the total manufacturing cost. For this example, the manufacturing cost is found to be $10,000.00.

Next, determine the total product supply non-manufacturing expenses. These are found to be $2,000.00.

Next, determine the total logistics costs. In this case, this is found to be $3,000.00.

Finally, calculate the total delivery cost using the formula above:


TDC = 10000 + 2000 + 3000

TDC = $15,000.00
