12. June 2014 Seminar on Future demands on competences and employees in logistics services.

Transport and logistics must be seen in connection with supply chains. Logistics as a subject is a methodological approach to integrate, optimize and develop improvement in the various supply chains. Cooperation seems to be an increasingly important element in finding these solutions today.

In this regard logistics competencies are a defining factor in dealing efficiently with supply chain aspects. Knowledge on how logistics works both internally and externally is decisive for choice of shipping methods and logistics solutions.

Unfortunately many companies are not able to define or determine which competences they will be needing in the future in this area and this in turn makes it very difficult for the educational institutions to anticipate future educational needs.

Specialized competences increase value for the company! Nobody can do everything which is why it is often an advantage to specialize knowledge and action in a well defined area if you want to obtain the best result possible.

This seminar aims at sharing knowledge about trends and expectations for future competencies and the speaker’s will primarily base their presentations on their own experiences from their working life.

The seminar will be held in English.
