Logistics and Transportation Management | SCMT.X402

Logistics management is the art of getting materials from here to there. It includes transporting products through truck, rail, water, and air. We all have experienced the dramatic impacts of critical shortages such as masks and PPEs—items that could mean life or death during a pandemic.

This course will discuss the history of each mode, government oversight, and regulation of transportation, as well as the deregulation of transportation that occurred in the 1980s. What are the best methods of transport for local shipments? What about transport to other parts of the world? We’ll cover the advantages and disadvantages of each mode.

It is highly recommended that students take "Evolving Role of Supply Chain Manager" as the first course prior to taking this course.
