Course description

Diploma in Transport Management

Transport sits at the heart of modern business and society. We all need to travel at some point in our lives, and the goods we buy are transported to retail outlets, or directly to our doors.

The part that transport plays in economic stability and social development cannot be understated. We take for granted our transport networks, the fact that deliveries will be made on time, our bus or train will arrive on time, the cost should never increase, and the driver of the vehicle should be polite and good humoured at all times.

The Role of a Transport Manager

As a transportation manager you will be confident and knowledgeable in a number of key areas, some of which are not uniquely related to transport. Key themes within the industry include:

  • Network planning, scheduling and geographical knowledge.
  • Operational knowledge, vehicle technologies and capabilities.
  • Licensing and legal compliance.
  • Commercial management (accounting and financial control).
  • Staff employment, welfare, training and development.
  • Health, safety and environmental management.
  • Transport trends.

This course will teach you the skills required to help meet those expectations, overcome the challenges and manage a transport system successfully.
