Purpose and rationale of the qualification

It has been estimated that logistics costs constitute at least 14% of the cost of goods in South Africa, which is at least 50% above the global norm. A large proportion of this overspend is attributed to inefficiencies caused by lack of competence.

To do this requires the establishment and maintenance of world class supply chains. Competent international logistics and supply chain management practitioners and support staff are required for this purpose.
