The pillars of logistics and of the degree course

As a logistics specialist you must possess expert knowledge, be able to operate IT systems and know your way around the globe. The professional pillars are clearly determined and oriented in the requirements of the companies:

  • Logistics and supply chain management
  • IT (SAP ERP, Intra logistics systems and SAP SCM)
  • Foreign trade aspects
  • Research projects involving logistics and transport economy in form of seminars

Structure of the study program – practice-oriented!

Six modules out of 13 are completed on practical questions in teams of 5 students together with companies. Exemplary tasks:

  • Air freight: Price-/accounting models in ULD outsourcing (ULD = Unit Load Design; air freight pallets)
  • Air freight / haulage: How does Brexit affect the air freight market?
  • Catering: Development of concept ideas for peak-oriented meals; Commissioning under consideration of upstream and downstream production processes
  • Block chain technology in logistics
  • City logistics concepts
  • Pharmaceutical sector: Digitization in the order fulfillment process
  • SME: Selection of appropriate commissioning technology / adequate storage technology

The lectures are mainly held at the globally unique House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM) at Frankfurt Airport. We are represented there with numerous projects and teach, research, and collaborate with 20 other institutions of higher education and many companies. Will we also be working there with you in the future?
