    Overview

    Logistics is a vital part of the economy and is becoming increasingly important in the global marketplace.

    Our Logistics Management course gives you the opportunity to balance academic management learning with practical insights into this fast-moving and very dynamic industry.

    Designed to give you an oversight of the management of logistics operations across all areas of the industry, this course takes a twofold approach. On one hand it covers the practical and more operational elements of logistics, including different transport modes, intermodal operations, and warehousing and inventory operations, while on the other it looks at the broader strategic management aspects of logistics areas such as international logistics, outsourcing operations and benchmarking.

    Why study Logistics Management?

    Logistics is an increasingly sophisticated global industry that touches everyone. At anyone time, millions of tonnes of goods are on the move around the world. The effective and efficient management of logistics has implications for the economy, the environment and well as society as a whole.

    This course will prepare you for management roles not only in logistics but also other industries and sectors nationally and globally, particularly supply chain, retail and manufacturing.

    Through our established professional networks, you'll meet and hear from industry experts and will visit logistic operations in Kent to gain real life insights.

      All about the course

      • strategic business management and operations
