SAQA ID 96798


NQF Level 5


Total Credits 120






The purpose of the programme is to provide qualifying students with wide-ranging intellectual competencies and practical skills in the acquisition, interpretation and understanding of logistics management principles. The student should be able to take decisions in the context of a logistics organisation, to analyse relevant information, and produce innovative responses to concrete but often unfamiliar problems based on informed judgement.

The proposed curriculum will contribute towards the intended outcomes by firstly providing a student with insight into the micro- and macro-economic environment in which logistics companies function. Furthermore, it will also provide the student with knowledge regarding general management principles and specific logistics management principles. Practical decision-making skills will be facilitated by means of case study material, which requires a critical situation analysis, the selection and interpretation of relevant information and the implementation of decisions.

A student is expected to undertake investigations in the logistics field, including gathering and interpreting relevant information and communicating effectively with relevant role players utilising appropriate logistics terminology. Students are also expected to work in a team in an unpredictable context with various professional and administrative role players, in the logistics profession, as well as people at grassroots level. A student should further demonstrate sensitivity towards different communities’ social and cultural differences and needs, particularly with respect to the distribution of goods within their communities.
