As individuals, we are constantly aware of the problems of transport: our train may be late, our car is held up in a traffic jam, or we may be concerned with, what may be, abnormally high bus fares.
Transport must rank almost as high as the weather as a topic of conversation. However, few critics are well informed of the exact location and division of responsibility for the transport system; even fewer really appreciate the nature of the problems involved in devising a rational transport system.
This course will teach you the skills to recognise these problems and enable you to operate a successful transport management team.
Qualities of efficient transport services
Economics of road transport
Acts and Regulations
