Warehouse Management and Operations

Warehouse 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.

On top of that, the module looks into the latest technology and development used for warehouse operations. Participants will also get to learn how to manage warehouse and distribution operations with benchmarking tools.
