Bachelor of Science (Honours) Logistics and International Shipping

This programme aims to produce professionals who are well equipped to analyse and solve problems in the operations of logistics and shipping. Nowadays, logistics and shipping have moved to a higher agenda in an organisation in every industry and sector. Senior management has begun to see the transportation function as an important competitive tool because logistics costs represent such a significant proportion of total cost that it is possible to make major cost reduction through fundamentally re-engineering logistics processes. 

Proper logistical procedures can lead a company to reduce cost and achieve efficiency by receiving greater responsiveness and reliability from suppliers, reduced lead time, just-in-time delivery and value-added services as a way of gaining market share and increase profitability.

Students are required to undergo a period of industrial placement in manufacturing or service industries. This experience will prepare students to perform their final year project and enhance their future employability.
