Areas of Focus
Effective planning of transportation and distribution networks has become more complex. This is driven by increasing customer requirements, expansion of global sourcing, security and regulatory requirements, volatile fuel costs, etc. This course is focused on understanding the strategic and tactical principles, practices, and tools required to address the cost, service, capacity, and carbon emissions tradeoffs in domestic and international transportation.
This course uses computer simulations. Students should bring their own computers. Limited loaner computers may be available – however, you must contact Meka in SCL (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 7 business days prior to the course start date to request a loaner computer and check availability. Loaner-computers are available on a limited, first-come basis.
