This program trains people to handle the various stages of the logistics process, both physical flows (people and goods) and information flows. You will develop the skills needed to coordinate customer service, inventory management, transportation organization and warehousing.

About the program

The Transportation Logistics program trains individuals to become technicians who are capable of performing tasks at every stage of the logistics process. These individuals are responsible for managing physical flow (people and goods) and information flow.

Transport logistics technicians work for manufacturing companies, distribution centres, warehouses, transport companies (road, maritime, railway and air) or for intermediaries (forwarding officers or customs brokers). They can also work for passenger transport companies or for businesses that provide logistics services.

Main tasks
In manufacturing companies, these technicians provide customer service, manage stock, organize transportation and coordinate warehousing activities.

In companies that specialize in goods transportation, they set rates, plan and organize distribution, manage vehicle fleets, perform representation and sales duties, provide customer service and process claims.

When working with customs brokers, they are responsible for documentation, preparing documents for customs clearance, and calculating required fees.

With forwarding officers, they are mandated with coordinating transportation and complementary services on an international scale. They also purchase and sell international transportation and complementary services, advise clientele and take care of documentation.
