Freight transport is a critical aspect in business and trade, as it provides the link between supply and demand. It is therefore a foundational enabler in economic trade, involving as it does the movement of goods and product trade on a national or international scale. Indeed the growth of global production offshoring in recent years, to countries like China, has brought freight transport into a sharper focus, as organisations increasingly try to balance cost with service reliability and inventory stock levels.

This essential supply chain training places the day-to-day operation of transport logistics within a global strategic framework. It gives an understanding of key transport systems and processes while introducing logistics management tools. All of this is placed in the context of global trade.
