Distribution Management and Planning

Distribution management and planning means that we are using the resources available to us effectively to ensure that we meet the requirements of service levels promised to our customers. In this lesson we discuss the role of distribution management, the elements and the objectives of distribution.

Material Handling for Transportation

The safe transport of our inventory is critical. Without delivering our goods in good order, we will not receive payment for our goods. This lesson explores the different modes of transport and how to ensure that, whichever mode you use, is the best and is utilised responsibly.

Mechanized and Engineered Equipment

It is very important to use the correct equipment when handling inventory to ensure both the safety of the goods and the people who are involved with the storage and movement of these goods. Different equipment has different purposes. 

Freight Management

Freight is an important part of our daily lives and cost is always a consideration. Every delivery that moves goods from your warehouse to the end consumer has a cost associated with it. Calculating costs for each part of these distribution activities will provide info to make an informed decision of which way to go.

Handling of Dangerous goods

The handling of dangerous goods and chemicals requires special attention. In this lesson we will look at different classifications of dangerous goods, how to store them effectively and what needs to done to provide safe storages for such materials.

Import and Exports

There are so many factors to consider when importing and exporting of goods. This lesson covers important considerations of trading between countries. It provides knowledge and understanding of legislations, costs and procedures involved when moving goods across borders.

Reverse Logistics

For every item that is shipped out of the warehouse, the company needs to plan for its return. Consumer driver markets require any goods that are unwanted, incorrectly shipped or damaged during transportation must be returnable. This means procedures need to be in place to handle this.
