I have 10 years of working experience in the warehouse. This course helps me to understand the overall process in the supply chain management and how to be an effective warehouse personnel in planning the process well. I also learn new knowledge on transportation which is not within my work scope. Thank you to the lecturers concerned who made the learning so enjoyable.

Before this course, I was not aware of the different contracts between buyer and seller. Knowledge on Incoterms 2010 is also limited to what I am required to know. After the course, I can know in depth on the various areas in Warehouse and Inventory Management. I can also actively take part in the planning and discussions on the warehouse improvement in my company and give suggestions based on what I learnt during the course.
