  • Logistics is the management of the flow of resources (physical, financial and information) between the point of origin and the point of consumption.

    Modules are designed to cover activities involved in planning, sourcing, making and delivering products and services. You will develop the techniques used to optimise these processes to meet a range of strategic objectives such as minimum cost, maximum service and shorter cycle times.

    Activities are designed to be challenging, relevant and stimulating and many involve commercial material brought to the classroom or the students themselves going on industrial visits. Our practically based programme continues to emphasise the development of analytical and problem-solving skills that has produced so many highly employable graduates to date.

    You will benefit from a number of industry field trips, with organisations such as Jaguar LandRover and the Port of Hull hosting our students in previous years.
