Event description
A one day online training course for Logistics teams to quickly build their analysis skills and provide a foundation for further learning.

About this event

Logistics and Supply Chain businesses are reporting an increasing need to strengthen analytical skills across their respective organisations.

This is to help deal with the on-going challenge of minimising costs, maintaining service quality, and reducing the carbon footprint – all under the shadow of advancing Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) legislation.

Businesses with stong analytical skills, who also make good use of data, are more likely to make decisions that will address this challenge successfully than those without such a skill base.

This one day, on-line training course will demonstrate how data can underpin decisions. It will provide experience of the four skills needed for data analytics. And it will demonstrate how data can help a business to minimise costs, reduce the carbon footprint, and continue to operate sustainably.
