Road transport probably forms the largest component of your supply operations budget; and yet, because it responds to indirect demand, it may also be the most neglected. Implementing best practice means more than improving efficiency; managers have to deal with stringent legal requirements and the regulatory demands of health and safety. There’s no doubt that effective front-line supervision of your road transport operations can make a direct and positive contribution to the success of your business.
This course provides your transport managers with the skills and knowledge to deliver an effective operation. The results: lower costs, optimal compliance, and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
This course will provide your managers with:
- Knowledge of the technical and regulatory aspects of transport operations
- Skills to analyse and meet customer needs
