About This Course

Large-scale enterprises as well as medium-sized firms have increasingly globalized their value creation activities over the past few years. They operate in global markets – with regard to procurement and production as well as in relation to their customers, who are supplied by global distribution systems. Therefore companies need to optimally design and coordinate their globally distributed value creation activities (particularly production and logistics). This module provides insight in important planning techniques, which support firms in solving these challenges.

An efficient and effective supply chain is possible through the discipline of an equally effective and efficient logistics management right from procurement through several warehousing and the use of transportation channels till the product reaches the customer.
