Transport Management

My Distance Learning College

Description

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.

This course covers topics such as:

  • Public Policy
  • Qualities of efficient transport services
  • Economics of road transport
  • The railways
  • Air transport
  • Water Transport
  • Acts and Regulations
  • Carriers and non-carriers
  • Cost of transport
  • Differential pricing
  • Competition
  • Principles of regulation
