Course Details

  • Logistics is about moving and storing things (including people) around the UK and the rest of the world. Look around you – virtually EVERYTHING you see has been handled by the logistics industry whether it’s the chair you are sitting on; the clothes you are wearing or the food you ate for breakfast today – it has all been moved it at some point.

    Think about the last music festival you went to, how did the food, drinks, stage, toilets and even the artists get there? All by the Logistics industry!
