As a logistician, it helped me to understand and apply a lot of steps and understand the whole process of the supply chain in general

Could have more assignments and exercises to apply what we learned but overall good course and knowledge

Jack15 January 2021

A lot of useful knowledge for those who are looking to start their career in logistics. Although the presenter's accent is sometimes hard to understand, I quite liked the way he presented the topic & the captions do help. Clear and well organised, touches upon all major issues - which could have been explained more thoroughly or with more examples, but you know what to pay attention to in the logistics process and in case you need to know more, you know what to look for.
