Logistics and Physical Distribution Management


22-26 October 2018


Distribution and logistics have been important features of industrial and economic life for many years, but it is only of recent that they been recognized by both business and academic circles. In the academic and business world, there is a recognition that maximum attention should be given to the now strategic functions of logistics and distribution management. however, there is a general lack of skilled ‘competent cadres’ specifically trained to manage the two functions. This course therefore offers introductory skills and knowledge in logistics and physical distribution management for effective performance of organisations in public, private and NGO sectors.
