LOG 101 - Principles of Logistics and Management I

Prerequisites: Students must have satisfied all MAT, ENG 001 and RDG 001 remediation requirements prior to starting the course.

Description: Development of the modes of transportation; economic, social and political systems within which the various modes of transportation operate and the effect of these modes on the transportation of goods and passengers; analysis of present challenges and opportunities facing the railroads, airlines, motor carriers, water carriers, pipelines and third parties (forwarders, brokers, etc.); emerging concepts and technologies. The student is introduced to the concept of the systems approach to distribution and logistics management, including existing and emerging communications systems. Also reviewed is regulation and deregulation affecting national and international transportation. SUNY GEN ED-n/a; NCC GEN ED-n/a Offered: On Occassion
