‘Promoting Professionalism in Logistics, ailment Transport and Supply Chain’

Diploma in Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain Management


Companies have now recognised that implementation of best Supply Chain Management practices can offer strategic differentiation. Many are now seeking to proactively build supply chain capability, as a result supply chain graduates are much sought after. In fact, at the recent annual End2END Supply Chain Conference 2015 held in Dublin, there was much debate among delegates about the need to generate more supply chain graduates and build greater capability in this key area.

Supply Chain Management is concerned with the management of the flow of goods and information through the value chain from order, materials acquisition to final consumption. Put more simply, Supply Chain Management is about being right: it is about getting the right product, in the right quantity, at the right quality, in the right place at the right time, for the right consumer at the right cost. In achieving all of this, Supply Chain Management takes in many of the functions of a business including forecasting, inventory management, purchasing management, warehouse management, information technology and transport management.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport is the professional body in Ireland for Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain professionals. We are committed to developing capability and enhancing professionalism in our industry sector.

There are a number of new developments supporting supply chain optimisation. They include greater focus on marketing and supply chain integration and the implementation of ‘lean manufacturing’ principles right across the supply chain from external suppliers through to the customer. The Diploma programme will up-skill participants and provide them with the necessary expertise to meet these future challenges and developments. It will also allow them to compete more effectively in career advancement.

This course is particularly suitable for experienced personnel and professionals who are seeking formal accreditation and acknowledgement of their practical skill set. It is a flexible part-time course which is designed specifically to fit around and compliment busy work schedules.


This is a two year part-time course which is run in both Cork and Dublin. Cork lectures are held in Griffith College and Dublin lectures are held in Dublin Institute of Technology, Bolton Street. The course starts at the end of September and finishes in May and is scheduled for Saturday mornings – see attached pdf for detailed schedule.
