Module overview

This module provides a comprehensive overview of the main features of logistic system operations. During the module, students will develop an appreciation for the different ways in which goods and services are managed and handled across the different transport modes from consignor to consignee, and the range of different issues that have to be considered when planning such logistics operations. The module combines theoretical analysis with case study examination and practical field trips to ensure that students experience the logistics systems first-hand.

The module takes advantage of the University of Southampton, Transportation Research Group’s’s substantial experience and expertise in logistics research, and will makes use of case studies based on recent and ongoing research projects for local authorities, industry, the EU and EPSRC.
