TRANSPORT INVESTMENT AND OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT
“When is a refrigerator not a refrigerator? When it is in Dubai at the time it is desired in Jeddah.” Transportation activities do not only impact fulfillment systems and delivery times but often constitute a large chunk of logistics costs incurred by any company. The timely distribution of goods and services as well as a well-designed transportation network are essential to the success of any enterprise.
Transportation activities can account for over 70% of an organization’s supply chain costs. Thus, it is vital that an organization gets the transportation function right, whether its ambition is to meet personnel mobility needs or to execute the delivery of goods and materials. In this course, we will examine the transportation function in a holistic manner. We start by outlining the requirements of successful fleet maintenance programs and workshops. We then describe the components of stringent fleet and driver safety programs and experiment with different capital budgeting and distribution routing techniques. We conclude with a thorough explanation of key fleet performance measures.
