Course content

Logistics has been instrumental in the globilisation of modern society; the demands of retailers, shippers and manufacturers and the growth of information systems and technology, making it possible to link people, products, business, cities, regions and countries more closely than ever before.

The potential and opportunities created by easier international movement of goods has, however, created new challenges – within the context of increasing complexity in the manufacturing, buying and distributing of goods, companies are being placed under pressure to develop faster, more efficient transnational supply chains.

This Master’s programme has been designed with input from employers within the global logistics industry, including Deutsche Post and Exact Logistics. It aims to provide knowledge, technical expertise and confidence in key areas, such as logistics strategy, transport economics, simulation, costing/pricing tools and IT project management – with the possibility of achieving PRINCE2 certification. We will cover global distribution network development, multi modal transportation and shipping, logistics operations and supply chain management.

This course is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and member of our teaching staff are active Chartered members and Fellows of CILT. Previous graduates have secured roles in a variety of industries, such as third party and fourth party logistics providers, freight forwarders, transport asset operations, retailers, distributors and manufacturing materials management within product supply chains.
