Director’s message


Welcome to the Faculty of Transport and Logistics, there has never been a time when logistics and supply chain management have had such prominence in our lives. Whether it be the supply of Covid 19 vaccines and personal protective equipment for the health sector or the availability of food in our supermarkets, successful supply chains are critical.
