In this basic logistics course, you will learn everything you need to understand logistics processes.

Planning is also covered in detail. You learn how to plan purchasing and procurement properly and how to optimise inventory management and forecasting. In addition, we cover JIT (Just-in-Time) and bottleneck analysis according to the Theory of Constraints.
