Course summary

About the course

Why Business with Sustainable Transport Management?

Transport is the lifeblood of successful economies. Our journey to work, business- related travel and the movement of goods require safe, efficient and reliable transport. Modes used include air, sea, rail, road and pipeline whilst airports, ports, rail and bus termini, warehouses and distribution centres act as nodes within transport networks.

Transport and logistics managers aim to make sure that people can travel safely and sustainably, and goods can flow successfully through the supply chain. Other equally important players in a business are the logistics analysts, customer service managers and planning managers. Transport operators ensure that our rail, bus and coach services are run efficiently and on time.

In the first year you’ll study the building blocks of business and you’ll receive a thorough grounding in all aspects of sustainable transport, logistics and distribution services. You’ll study the operational and economics aspects of sustainable transport and learn how these can affect businesses We’ll also touch on a range of sectors, including train operators, bus and coach companies, third party logistics operators, consultancies and even the armed forces.
