This post addresses the best cost allocation method.

In 2009 Shanks/Tumbler Industrial Expansion Enterprises (STIEE) was acquired as a transport company for nikel mines in Arizona, for $1.4 million cash by John Shanks and Glen Tumbler. This funding acquired trucks/forklifts that were almost new but leftover from the previous transport company that declared bankruptcy, land that is used to store the transport vehicles, a 40,000 square foot warehouse where repairs can be done to the vehicles and where the company offices are located.
