Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management (LOG201)


The marketplace has become a 24/7/365 environment with globalisation, e-commerce and rapid advances in technology. Suppliers, manufacturers and customers can be located anywhere in the world. Managing the global supply chain has become ever so complex and uncertain. Trade wars, infectious disease outbreaks, natural disasters, political unrest, terrorism, changing customer needs and economic uncertainty have clouded the picture. LOG201 Supply Chain Management equips students with an understanding of the supply chain from the managerial perspective in today’s dynamic business climate. It explores state-of-the-art strategies, industry best-practices and managerial tools for decision-making in supply chains. Students will learn how to make informed decisions that can enhance not only responsiveness and accuracy, but also resilience and sustainability in the supply chain.
