Configuring and managing the warehousing and logistic operation is key to the achievement of a company’s customer service and cost management goals. With organisations competing on speed, reliability and flexibility and the ever-increasing pressure for extended product ranges, shorter product life-cycles, customised delivery options and effective and efficient reverse logistics, warehouse and distribution functions are seen as a key driver of organisational success. Designing, implementing and managing efficient and effective warehouse and logistics infrastructure and process often requires enhanced capability across all personnel and a general up-skilling of the function.


This 2-day course is designed to provide insight into warehouse design and operations, good practice in logistics management and the role technology can play in supporting this key value adding function.


This training course will be presented in a highly professional and interactive manner by a regional logistics guru. Participants will learn by active participation during the training seminar through the use of exercises, questionnaires, syndicate and group discussion, training videos and discussions on "real life" issues in their organizations.

Length: 02 days
