Diploma in Logistics Management


Introduction

Logistics is about delivering goods on time and at the right time. An extra week that goods are stored in the warehouse can result in the loss of thousands of dollars in profits. Logistics and supply chain management play important roles in the overall marketing and business strategy. It can make or break deals. It is all about managing and controlling every detail of the operation for the effective flow of goods, services and information from the point of origin to the marketplace.

Modern logistics industry is known as "the greatest trade in the 21st century". It is regarded as "the third most important source of profit". Today, Logistics in China is identified as one of the 12 key areas for development.

She has the world’s busiest and largest container port with over 200 different shipping lines sailing daily to every major port in the world. She also has one of Asia’s largest cargo airports. For this reason, Asia’s leading logistics education and research institute is based in Singapore.
