About

The emergence and expansion of local and regional trade agreements, free labour flow and rapid growth of globalisation in general have necessitated reliable and sustainable transportation and logistics systems. Moreover, the remarkable increase in visits to and from the UK during the last ten years, growing UK trade and special events, such as the London Olympics in 2012, all demand well-established transport systems, logistics planning and management expertise.

This Transport and Logistics Management, MA/PGDip programme from the University of Greenwich is designed to meet the needs of home and international graduates who have not previously specialised in logistics and transport or those who are interested in expanding their knowledge and practical capabilities in this area.

The programme tries to explore the key notions of transport and logistics and discusses new approaches to the design and analysis of transport and logistics systems. In addition to the basic concepts of passenger and freight transport, and local and global logistics, the programme focuses on contemporary issues, such as e-business, transport systems modelling, and environmental issues in transport and logistics, thus ensuring it is up to date and fit for the current needs of employers.

The programmes is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). This means that students are recognised by these professional bodies as holding their professional qualifications to full professional status level 6 upon completion of the Master's programme. Students will participate in CILT activities, including the CILT student conference held on campus for the last seven years. Students will visit industrial locations, have seminars given by guest speakers from industry and collaborate with business partners for dissertation projects.

In the final stage of the course study, all students will undertake a one week consultancy project organised by the university, which has been highly valued by previous students.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To equip students with the latest knowledge in transport and logistics
  • To develop students' ability to critically analyse problems that affect freight and passenger transport
  • To expand students' ability to manage practical challenges in the transport and logistics sectors.
