This subject focuses on the operational, financial and managerial aspects of transportation. In a global manufacturing corporation’s supply chain, all of the facilities are identified by nodes while transportation is represented by all of the links between these nodes. Transportation is one function that spreads across the supply chain. Students will learn how to quickly adapt to changing conditions, manage the transportation of raw materials and goods to or from international destinations as well as across Canada’s complex geography. They will also know how to choose the safest and most cost-effective and time-appropriate mode or combinations of modes.
