After successful completion of the course, the student is able to:
  • LO1: Explain logistics and transportation management strategies
  • LO2: Analyse and describe logistics systems
  • LO3: Differentiate and identify transportation problems within a given scenario
  • LO4: Examine and formulate logistical problems from case studies
  • LO5: Design, describe, and apply appropriate solution approaches for planning a given logistic system
  • LO6: Implement and assess methods for computer-aided planning (e.g. using a programming language)
  • LO7: Critically assess and describe a given solution approach
  • LO8: Prepare a well-structured report about a given logistic/transportation issue
This course treats and studies relevant elements and components under the broad category of logistics and transportation by covering fundamental concepts, analytical approaches, and techniques for supporting the design and planning of logistics and transportation systems within supply chains. Throughout this course, different transportation and logistics concepts and cases are reviewed jointly with management and planning approaches in order to enhance the freight transportation of a given company or chain of them as well. The students attending this course will: (i) get a broad insight about transportation and distribution, (ii) explore, develop, and use models and solution approaches for planning and scheduling transport and logistics operations, and (iii) determine where and how specific principles and tools can be applied.
