logisticsIf you are at all confused about what to study or are simply looking for a course to study that is in demand by business, then a course in logistics and supply chain management is an ideal choice. Every year business puts out a list of skills that are in demand and every year for some time now, logistics and supply chain management qualifications are in demand.

The reason courses in logistics being in demand is also quite simple. The business environment is increasingly competitive from both internal forces and competition as well as International competition. The reason is that as technology becomes more prevalent and suppliers/retailers/ service providers or any business for that matter, turn to the Internet to both satisfy customer demand as well as to reduce the cost of doing business.

OK, so what makes logistics a course that is in demand? Well, every single business that is online to any extent, or supplies a product or service has an opportunity to improve efficiencies by optimizing their supply chain and as logistics forms an extremely important part of the supply chain, courses in demand include logistics management, fleet management, warehouse management, or a specialist in stores and stock control.

Each of these and other areas of the supply chain need to work in harmony ensuring for example that stock levels are right to supply customers on time and that there is not paid for stock sitting on shelves for months. By optimizing the stock levels, cash is used in an efficient manner to produce sales and cashflow which is the life blood of any organization.

Fleet management is also a critically important part of the supply chain and perhaps the most important logistics management function. Well structured fleet finance and servicing can make a dramatic impact on a companies ability to service their customers. Vehicles and the staff that drive and or man the vehicles are the first line of contact between customer and company, so every aspect of fleet management needs to be running smoothly and the vehicles running optimally. Fuel is an expensive part of fleet management and it is essential for example for vehicles to well maintained and tyres replace at regular intervals.
