- Duration: 24 Hours
Freight transport, by whatever mode, is considered to be part of the service sector, and the demand for freight transport is the result of activity in other sectors of the economy such as manufacturing and retailing. As a service, freight transport is an intangible product, it has no physical form. Although the product being transported can be stored or stockpiled, the freight transport activity itself cannot and must, by definition, be used at the point of consumption. Value is only added to the transported product at the point of delivery. In modern economies where efficiencies are sought in all sectors of industry, three qualities are expected from a freight transport system, namely availability, reliability and responsiveness.
This course aims at explaining in general terms the freight transport industry and the environment in which it operates, describing how the industry is regulated both nationally and internationally as well as outlining the strategies and best practices available to a road freight business.
