Transforming the supply chain with transportation technology innovations

by Canadian Shipper

Globalization of markets, just-in-time inventory practices and cost-cutting pressures have made transportation management critical to supply chain management. In an industry where speed, visibility and efficiency are paramount, new transportation management technology helps companies meet these new demands.

The Schulich Executive Learning Centre of York University is hosting an executive course to show how the new generation of transportation technology enables more efficient processes, sharing of information between companies, lower costs and better utilization of assets.

The course, scheduled for May 3-4, focuses on Transportation Management software, web services and e-business integration as well as business intelligence.

The seminar will explore key advances in transportation management applications and explain how they can make your transportation operations run more efficiently. Aligning of organizational business drivers with technology to achieve the best return on investment will be a key discussion. Purchased software and hardware options will also be reviewed as well as the criteria for successful technology selection.

Schulich also offers a professional certificate related to this subject through The Executive Centre for Supply Chain & Logistics Management. It also recently partnered with Canadian Transportation & Logistics on a groundbreaking study of Canadian shipper and motor carrier investment patterns, identifying key gaps.
