Logistics and Transport training and courses

Logistics affects your company's functioning, its economy and its competitiveness. A course in logistics at a basic level will give you an understanding of concepts, definitions, approaches and techniques. Training in logistics at more advanced levels will give you knowledge about how to plan and calculate the various streams and work more strategically. FindCourses offer a wide range of Logistics courses to choose from, click here for our London courses.

Production Logistics training courses

Specifically, production logistics focuses on improving flows in production to achieve the highest possible efficiency by controlling and reducing lead times. This often includes a number of strategies to achieve optimal efficiency, which often involves more than one company. One of the most basic steps in production logistics is to design an optimal batch size. Once a firm knows its optimal batch size, it produces according to this. The goal is to always have batch sizes tailored precisely to customers’ orders.

Ways to control the production flow can be done in different ways. Two of the most common methods are the Pull (Suction) and the Push (Pressure) methods. Pull systems are a cornerstone of lean production and can be designed using Kanban systems that only produce according to customer needs. Push system means that a company produces as much as it does from raw materials, which gives the advantage that the customer is more likely to get products within a specified time, but the risk is higher for larger stocks compared to a push system. A major challenge in the production logistics is efficiently scheduling orders from customers while maintaining adequate capacity. If a company has a long production process, with long lead times and long order backlog, it is naturally more difficult to meet these demands.

Transport logistics training courses

This refers to the movement of goods from A to B. The four most common modes are truck, rail, sea and air. Sometimes you have to shift transport modes, which usually occurs at a terminal. For this to happen as efficiently as possible there are some solutions for the various modes, to ensure the journey is continued as soon as possible.

In some cases transport without a transshipment terminal can increase efficiency. This method is referred to as Merge in Transit, where the various carriers have a common meeting point known as the interconnection.

Logistics on an International Level

For a majority of firms logistic operations take place outside one country. In order to deliver goods in the most efficient way operation professionals need to know how to organise freight transport and consider different aspects of the supply chain. There are a number of legal connections to logistics that can affect the whole transportation process. It is crucial to understand the implementation of customs tariffs during import, export and transit since it could significantly benefit transport logistics.  

The laws usually present in most cases lie with the various transportation laws (both international and national) as well as contract law and law of sale. What is special about contracts and sales associated with logistics and transportation is that the duration of contracts is often difficult to estimate or to define. In many cases, companies have different standardised contracts for transportation and goods; for example, one of these is “Incoterms”, which are a known framework for the standard of delivery requirements related to international shipments.

Delivering high performance – efficient supply chain management

The companies which constantly work with logistics must perform timely delivery of products to meet their customers’ needs. Courses in Logistics and Transport will develop your knowledge in planning shipments, choosing correct distribution channels and ensure storage of goods which will lead to efficient goods’ transportation and consumers’ satisfaction.
