Solid Career In Logistics & E-Business Tech

IT has been a rough two years for many businesses due to the Covid- 19 pandemic.

Peninsula College Malaysia has had its ears close to the ground for more than two decades when it comes to producing highly employ- able graduates.With the backing of its parent company, PKT Logistics Group, Peninsula’s curriculum in Logistics and E-Business Technology is packed with invaluable and up- to-date insights from the industry. Diploma in Logistics Management With over 65% of the Malaysian gross domestic product contributed by exports, naturally the impor-tance of logistics and supply chain management is much greater here than it is in other countries. With trade happening at break-neck speed, professional logisti-cians are in high demand to facili- tate the exchange of goods to the right place at the right time. Their job begins where the manufacturer produces the goods and ends when the goods are in the consumers’ hands. Logistics is more than stacking containers at ports. Such a career involves simulation, modelling, forecasting, problem-solving and even negotiating skills. This industry is best suited for inquisitive minds who are driv-en by the desire to understand pat-terns and trends within data. Such a career also challenges you to think on your feet under pressure.Under Peninsula College’s Diploma in Logistics Management programme, students learn theory and practical skills in operation.
