Program description

The logistics and supply chain industry is massive and global

Logistics is an innovative industry with constantly emerging business processes changes, enterprise software, tracking-and-reporting technologies, and business models.

The industry is fiercely competitive both at the global scale and at the local domestic scale. Companies that can effectively manage procurement, just-in-time delivery, and relationships with third-party suppliers will be able to control their own costs, score win-win solutions with partners, ensure business continuity, and ultimately develop a core competency that underpins competitive advantage and better prices and service for customers.

For these reasons, trained and skilled logistics and supply chain managers are in demand in New Zealand, in our major export markets (e.g., India, north Asia, SE Asia), and globally.
