Road transport may be the most critical segment in your distribution network. If your transport assets – not just cars, buses, and heavy freight vehicles, but trailers, courier vehicles and even mechanical handling equipment – are not managed well, your business will suffer in terms of downtime, availability of goods, transport costs and – ultimately – customer satisfaction. It is essential that this element of your business is in capable hands.
This course gives your transport management staff the skills to:
- Manage vehicle provision and support
- Make informed technical, financial and transport policy decisions
- Use whole-life and life-cycle costing methodologies
