Managing the wholesale supply chain and retail distribution supply chain is becoming more important as we progress. For Exmaple, online businesses work in what was a traditionally wholesale type environment with warehouses of stock that needs to be sent out, while at the same time being a retail outlet needing to deal with customers on a daily basis.
This is one example of the importance of upskilling in the Wholesale and retail distribution environment. There are many such examples which have lead to more sophisticated ways of managing stock and the warehouse.
In this national certificate course, you will learn the following skills
- Moving, packing and maintaining stock in the distribution warehouse;
