Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Global Logistics is a new Career and Technical program for the 2017-2018 school year.  This is an Advanced Career (AC) program offering dual credit options for the third and fourth courses.

Course Description 

Global logistics and supply chain management connect internal
functions of an organization with other institutions around the
globe. It is vital to understand the roles of logistics and supply
chain management in a global economy where individuals and
organizations have access to markets across the world. Th is fi eld
requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills to coordinate
the movement of goods and services that may be separated by a
few feet or thousands of miles. In an industry always striving for
optimization, decision-making skills are paramount.
Th e AC Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management
(GLSCM) pathway enables students to practice innovative and
critical thinking skills as they develop solutions to authentic
logistics problems businesses regularly face both locally and
internationally. Students will learn the complexities businesses
deal with in securing raw materials from distant locations, moving
them across multiple borders, receiving them in various ports,
transporting them to warehouses accessible through multiple
modes of transportation, storing them effi ciently or employing
the just-in-time model, and then distributing them to customers
through networks that properly balance transit time with cost.
Logistics is indispensable for the U.S. economy, constituting
nearly 9 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).
Completers of the GLSCM pathway master extensive fi eldrelated
technical content that prepares them for a wide array of
opportunities after high school.
