Transportation Operations and Sourcing will provide a functional basis for understanding and managing transportation operations. Accordingly, the course will cover foundational topics like terminology, pricing, and negotiating freight needs. This program is specifically designed for those new to transportation field, but those who have already worked in the field can benefit as well.
