Why Study Logistics Management?
Logistics is one of the most diverse and dynamic specialist fields worldwide. Often overlooked in its importance, effective supply chain management fuels the very fabric of society as we know it. In the absence of effective supply chain planning and execution, nothing would reach its intended destination. From raw materials to finished products and everything in between, supply chain activities ensure everything we count on gets from A to B. Irrespective of the size of the company, every business worldwide utilises logistics to some extent or another. It’s almost unheard of to encounter a business that is 100% self-sufficient. As a result, demand for talented supply chain and logistics managers worldwide is continuously high. If you’ve been considering a change in direction, the field of logistics has a lot to offer.
