This unit teaches students about the variety of available transportation options and their associated advantages and disadvantages, given transportation systems are the key to moving goods through the supply chain whether locally or globally. The planning and management of transportation needs of an organization, within an increasingly complex global environment, where unforeseen events can have major impacts on operations, profitability as well as business relationships will also be explored.
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1 Develop and articulate a coherent and cost effective transportation plan for a business operation.
2 Articulate the reasoning behind transportation decisions giving a balanced justification for the basis of decisions.
3 Describe the business environment in which transportation decisions are made and analyse how changes in the environment require adaptation of transportation plans.
