Lehigh's Mountaintop Campus
This program is designed for mid-level working professionals.
Logistics is a core business practice that is responsible for the creation of value to the external customer and helps to integrate the other functions and processes of the firm. Effective transportation management is no longer a tactical approach to simply moving freight and doing it at the lowest possible cost, instead a more strategic approach is needed to use transportation and logistics as a competitive advantage tool, in the ever-challenging and rapidly changing economic and commercial landscape.
This program will help you better understand how to use logistics and transportation to provide value both internal to the firm and external to the firm. Topics related to internal value creation include: Logistics and SCM, System Design Transportation Management and DC management. Topics related to external value creation include: Global Supply Management, Logistics Service Providers, E-commerce and Future Trends. There will also be plenty of discussion and idea sharing among the participants, as well as hands on practice with business cases and real world problems.
Program cost is $1060. Cost includes all program materials and meals.
