WHY LOGISITICS?

In today’s highly competitive and global marketplace the pressure on organisations to find new ways to create and deliver value to customers grows ever stronger. Logistics is a term widely used in business for a range of activities associated with the efficient and effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from a point of origin to the point of consumption in response to consumer requirements.

Management of these activities has been revolutionised over the past twenty years, by addressing logistical issues through an extended perspective of the supply chain that incorporates concepts from several management disciplines, such as:

  • Strategy formation
  • Theory of the firm
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing management
  • Management accounting
  • Markets research
  • Operations research

Teaching & Assessment
