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 tp 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/service industries. This experience will prepare students to perform their final year project and enhance their future employability.
