Supply chain and logistics management have been among the fastest evolving business disciplines over the past two decades. The continuous arrival of innovative concepts and techniques into the mainstream has resulted in a non-stop journey of learning and development for professionals in logistics.
Strategic Axis offers the best courses in Dubai due to our commitment to excellence and also to our partnerships with overseas education providers.
The UAE is an international hub of transport, shipping, and finance and our supply chain management courses seek to give our students the skills they need to excel both in Dubai and overseas.
This course covers the latest essential practices in forecasting, planning, procurement, transportation, warehousing, and logistics. It also includes the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) framework for continuous performance improvement across the supply chain.
This course also will describe the role and objectives of transportation management in logistics and use value adding warehousing techniques.
Participants who fully attend an MPC course and complete the test on the last day will receive a Strategic Axis Professional Certificate (SAPC), in addition to the one they receive for attendance. SAPC certificates are regionally recognized and can be quite valuable when applying for more senior roles within the organization or outside.
If participants wish to obtain an international certificate, they will need to pass an exam from CILT – The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, UK.
