Course Objectives Global structure and process will bring more economic; opportunities, potentials, uncertainties, threat and challenges which influence deeply on logistics service provider companies. For influence routing, the first main tool is export process and other tool is operational planning process with covering entire company. The main dynamic of these processes is interested and determination of ridership. Today globalisations cause to become strait competitive environmental. Leaders and senior manager, (CEO) who work in company, attract attention to the export process and planning process of strategy, tactic and operational. In context, The purpose of this course is to provide experimental opportunity about practise of international trade and logistics management by way of simulations applications to international logistics ant transportation section’s students.
