Grade 15 - Business Management and Administration Cluster

Introduction to Careers in Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (Credit: 0.50)

Give students at your school an overview of the nature and scope of transportation, distribution, and logistics with this Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective. Throughout this semester-long course, students in grades 9-12 study a career field with the simple goal of getting the right quantity of the right product to the right place at the right time in a cost-effective manner. Students also discover that this “simple” goal is quickly complicated by several issues, including changing consumer demands and the cost of efficient transportation.
