In today's highly competitive and global marketplace the pressure on organizations to find new ways to create and deliver value to customers is increasing. In the last two decades, logistics and supply chain management has moved to the centre stage to become a key determinant of business competitiveness.
Logistics is a term widely used in business for a range of activities associated with the efficient and effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption in response to consumer requirements.

This course briefly introduces current practices, issues and trends in the field of logistics and supply chain management. It provides participants with information and basic training in related business disciplines to design and manage efficient and effective logistics and supply chain systems.
