Module Overview

[Previously known as Supply Chain in a Connected World]

This module provides students an insight into the back-of-house logistics activities that make online businesses successful. As e-commerce gains further importance in the world of international trade, it will be necessary to know logistics fundamentals such as deciding between land, sea and air transportation modes, and calculating the relevant costs to design an operations plan for an online business.

To enhance their understanding, students will have the opportunity to visit the Singapore City Gallery or Maritime Gallery to appreciate Singapore’s investment in logistics infrastructure for international trade.
