About the Course

This 5-day interactive Logistics and Supply Chain Management training course will cover the end-to-end flow of goods, information, and services in the commerce industry. Supply Chain Management is a term used when discussing the success of a business and overall costs or profits. Modern adaptions to SCM have helped smooth out the supply chain, helping to increase customer demand while simultaneously eliminating "arduous, labour-intensive, time-consuming and disorganised" processes. Now, more than ever, supply chain management is a mainstream of successful business management, and businesses are finding the most lucrative and valuable solutions for their supply chain needs through its adoption and use. SCM can be broken down into three vital components: customer service and retention, reducing and controlling operational costs, improving overall profits by stabilising costs and ensuring the security of supply.

Logistics is a major pillar of the efficient supply chain that influences sound supply chain management. Effective and efficient logistics management throughout the end-to-end supply fulfilment process requires constructing and managing robust methods that permeate the entire supply cycle. In doing so, the business will benefit from having a cost-effective and efficient supply chain management system, maximising supply performance and providing a competitive advantage over its competitors.

It will provide the knowledge and understanding, and management of these criteria. It will equip the delegates with the ability to establish and deliver a seamless Logistics and SCM capability for their organisation, capitalising skills and potential to assume progressive roles and responsibilities, complementing both their organisation's success and, as significantly, their career ambitions, irrespective of which industry segment or sector they may choose.
