Logistics management is one of the foundation blocks of any successful business. With the onslaught of globalization, logistics management has become more complex and face stiff challenges. It entails a wide variety of activities as global enterprizes need to integrate the flow of goods from the suppliers, through their facilities, on to their customers. Proper performance of logistics functions can thus contribute to both lower costs and enhanced customer service. Unless an organization can manage and coordinate the movement of materials, information and cash through its business, and those of partner organizations, it is unlikely to outperform its competitors. With Malaysia's strategic development in the logistics sector, such as, business expansion in air cargo hub, container port, as well as in service industries like airlines, couriers and banks, the market demand for logistics professionals is tremendous. Typical problems in this area will include supply chain design (materials handling, facility location, plant layout, integrated production systems, warehousing, pricing, service support), supply chain operations (inventory control, third-part logistics, transportation and freight operations, air cargo systems, routing, network optimization, distribution channels) and tactical issues (item tracking). Universiti Kuala Lumpur has risen to this challenge by offering programmes that prepare graduates with knowledge of the strategic and economic principles of the efficient flow of materials, information, capital and products through the whole distribution network.

Various growth areas in the country are being rapidly developed in order to support the nation's economic agenda. Within each of these growth areas, the private sectors are encouraged to develop commercial and industrial activities which results in the increase in demand for trained personnel with wider scope of competency to ensure that these industries being developed remain efficient and competitive. Recent surveys have shown that there is a definite shortage of personnel trained in the fields of logistic and supply chain and the programmes in UniKL MITEC are designed to fulfill such a need. UniKL MITEC has the right combination of state-of-the-art facilities and dedicated lecturers to provide the right training to fill the need in these two fields. The skills that they acquire in UniKL MITEC will assist them in their career progression as well as to ensure that their organization remain efficient and competitive. Logistic and transportation knowledge and competencies are important for personnel in many industries,
