Course Description

Logistics involves managing the movement of goods from point of origin to point of consumption to meet customer or client requirements.  Goods managed could include physical items such as food, products, equipment and liquids as well as abstract items such as energy and information.  Logistics Manager or Supply and Distribution Managers are generally responsible for planning, directing and coordinating the supply, storage and distribution of goods produced by an organisation. They can be involved in areas such as material handling, packaging, transportation, inventory, production, warehousing and even security.
