Transportation Management and Operations

Transportation Management and Operations is a module selected from the Specialist Diploma in Supply Chain Management. It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma. As this is a stackable course, participants may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period, of two years, to be awarded the full Specialist Diploma qualification.

This module aims to provide an understanding, both practically and theoretically, on the applications of transportation management and operations in local context. It also looks into the efficient management of industrial and transport logistics. Upon completion of the module, participants will be better informed on concepts such as transportation management, last mile delivery, and the use of IT tools for track and trace.
