Logistics and Transportation Management | SCMT.X402

Logistics management is the art of moving and storing materials from one point to another on the globe. In this course for people interested in building supply chain expertise, we study various transporting modes for products through road, rail, water, and air. Students will gain an understanding of transportation models and inventory localization which are focal points in network planning strategies. We will review the supply chain operations reference (SCOR) model with its focus on improving supply chain processes. Finally, we will discuss the increased costs of logistics resulting from the worldwide lockdown due to the COVID pandemic, and lessons learned.

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