Logistics

Available online
  • In today’s economy, we take for granted that the things we buy can come from anywhere in the world, but how often do we think about what it takes to distribute products across the globe? Logistics, and the people who work in this field, are the answer.

    Business and organizations of all types and sizes need someone to manage their supply chain —the system that moves a product from supplier to consumer. They manage the entire life cycle of a product, which includes how a product is acquired, distributed, allocated, and delivered. Small operations might have one person in charge of logistics while larger organizations can have an entire division dedicated to logistics. Logisticians are involved in everything from shipping, distribution, warehousing and quick deliveries to customers coordinating the responses to major natural disasters

    Central Community College offers a logistics certificate as part of its Business Administration, Accounting, Entrepreneurship, and Logistics program to prepare students for employment in the fields of transportation or materials management. The certificate provides basic skills in logistics, supply chain management and purchasing logistics. Courses in this area can be used as electives as part of an associate of applied science degree in business administration or accounting.
