Logistics Processes connects multi-modal transportation to the wider supply chain function and its many, interlocking components. This course sharpens learners’ ability to optimize the variables that create efficiencies within day-to-day operations while managing operational liabilities and obligations. Whether applied to simple modal choices or complex (multi-carrier/multi-modal) projects, learners will be able to maneuver materials, finished goods and information efficiently through all points and processes before, between and after transportation links.
Building on the detailed study of each transportation mode in the Transportation Systems course, Logistics Processes continues the learning for any professional who wants or needs a more in-depth understanding of the industry. Graduates of both courses are ready for more advanced, management-oriented logistics courses like Logistics Decision Modelling and Integrated Logistics.

On average, students tell us that Logistics Processes requires a commitment of 4-6 hours a week to complete the readings and assignments, participate in discussions, and prepare for the final examination.
Students complete 10 short quizzes (one per week) throughout the course of the semester. There is one quiz for each chapter in the Logistics Processes textbook, and each quiz includes 10 multiple choice questions. Each weekly quiz is due at 11:59 pm EDT each Sunday. Quizzes can be completed early for learners who need to plan ahead for business travel, vacations or other commitments, but must be completed before their individual deadlines.
You'll automatically receive your grade for each quiz immediately after you submit your responses, so you can see which questions you got correct, learn the correct answer for any questions you got wrong, and assess your learning as you go.
During the semester, students will participate in 2 online group discussion assignments. The first discussion will take place over the course of the first 5 weeks of the semester.

Group discussion assignment marks are based on the quality, quantity and timeliness of your responses in the discussions. In general, students are expected to contribute 3-4 high-level comments to each discussion.
