This subject was previously known as Transport Management.
Transportation plays a critical role in any supply chain as it moves products and services to where and when they are required. Significant global changes (globalisation, post 9/11, Iraq war etc) have made major impacts on the logistics environment thus making proper management of this function a necessity. This unit will look into the important issues in domestic and global transportation which include transport planning and operations, transport infrastructure and regulations, selection of carriers and third party suppliers, transport costing, transport strategies, and information technology in transportation.
