We consider a product rental network with a fixed number of rental units distributed across multiple locations. The units are accessed by customers without prior reservation and on an on-demand basis. Customers are provided with the flexibility to decide on how long to keep a unit and where to return it. Because of the randomness in demand and in the length of the rental periods and in unit returns, there is a need to periodically reposition inventory away from some locations and into others.
