An effective logistics network depends on cooperation and interaction with supply chain partners. But in a virtual world, it's easy to lose sight of how important these relationships can be. Arizona State University aims to rectify this with its "Logistics in Supply Chains" executive education course.
Throughout this online course, instructors will focus on the logistics network's role in supply chain management; how to design an effective logistics network; and the roles, limitations, and cost structures of various types of logistics service providers. Course participants will also learn techniques for working with supply chain partners on forecasting, inventory management, and disaster planning.
Arizona State will offer the course twice this year: from April 6-May 10 and from Aug. 10-Sept. 13. For more information, visit http://wpcarey.asu.edu/exec/oe/logistics-insupply-chains.cfm.
