Why Study Transport Management?

One of the most important activities at the heart of every logistics strategy, transport management concerns the physical transportation of goods or persons between locations.  It is the responsibility of the transport manager to ensure that all shipments arrive in their intended destination on time and in an appropriate condition.  While some transport managers specialise in everyday goods and commodities, others work exclusively in the field of passenger transportation.  Successful careers in transport management are built upon a strong foundation of critical thinking, advanced analytical skills and effective communication.  Not to mention, an extensively solution-oriented mindset and the ability to remain objective in high-pressure situations.  In return, qualified transportation managers gain access to an extensive job market worldwide.  From product manufacturers to logistics companies to travel agencies, career opportunities are wide open for talented transportation specialists.

Course Syllabus

This is a fully endorsed Level 3 Certificate in Transport Management, open to candidates worldwide with no entry-requirements to fulfil.  Boost your career prospects by studying from home at a time and pace to suit your lifestyle, with expert tutor support provided from start to finish.  Course content covers the following transport management topics:

Module 1. Introduction to Transport Management

The first module provides a detailed introduction to the field of transport management, along with the primary functions and objectives of transport management from a business perspective.  Various roles and responsibilities within the field of transport management are discussed, along with common challenges in effective transport management and the consequences of a substandard strategy.

Module 2. Logistics Strategy & Operations

Candidates are then introduced to strategic decision-making in transportation and logistics, including a detailed breakdown of the effective logistics strategy and the stages involved in carrying out logistics audits.  The importance of effective long-term planning is also discussed, along with the cornerstones of a viable and efficient logistics and transportation strategy.

Module 3. Procurement & Manufacturing Strategies

Module three focuses heavily on the similarities and differences between procurement and purchasing.  Candidates consider the primary objectives and functions of procurement, the process of choosing the right suppliers and the importance of continuously monitoring supplier performance.  The procurement cycle is also introduced, along with instances where single sourcing can be beneficial.

Module 4. Transportation Management   

Course content then turns attention to the physical transportation of materials, finished products and people.  The importance of selecting the most appropriate mode of transportation is discussed, along with the advantages and disadvantages of third party carrier involvement and the applications of intermodal transport in a wider supply chain and logistics setting.

Module 5. Managing Delivery Operations 

Order management and production scheduling are discussed in the fifth module, in which candidates consider some of the variables that can affect if, when and in what condition shipments arrive at their intended destinations.  Course content also covers the four primary cornerstones of effective order management.

Module 6. Warehousing and Material Handling   

Bringing the course to a close, module six provides a fascinating introduction to warehousing and material handling in a logistics and supply chain setting.  Several essential material handling and storage considerations are brought into discussion, alongside other key warehousing activities and the importance of a workable warehousing strategy in logistics.
