Integrated Logistics is a comprehensive, senior-level course that explores how integration is crucial to sound logistics operations within successful and sustainable organizations. It helps learners create efficient, silo-free logistics systems and decision-making environments, integrating all activities involved in the cost-effective and uninterrupted movement of materials and information from their source to the point-of-consumption.
Leveraging all of CITT’s other technical courses, this practical, systems-oriented course is valued by transportation professionals, practicing or aspiring logistics and supply chain managers and other professionals involved in the procurement, flow or management of goods.

The majority of the course work marks for Integrated Logistics come from the two business case study reports, which are each worth 20% of the final course mark.
Similar to the structure of the formal reports in Transportation Systems and Logistics Processes, learners are challenged to analyze the scenario provided, and apply the skills and knowledge gained throughout the course to prepare a detailed 3,500 word report including a high-level executive summary. The two case studies are interconnected and progressive, with the information developed in the first case study necessary to complete the second case study.
Online group discussions engage students in reflection, dialogue and debate around the weekly topic, challenge students to apply the course material in real world business scenarios, and enable students to learn from their classmates and facilitator in addition to the course materials.
Online group discussion marks are based on the quality, quantity and timeliness of responses in the discussions. In general, students are expected to contribute 3-4 high-level comments throughout each week.
