WERC Launches New Distribution Logistics Operations Course

Friday, May 3, 2024

The Warehousing Education & Research Council (WERC) has introduced a fourth course in the Distribution Logistics Education Program. The Distribution Logistics Operations Course is tailored to give employees in-depth knowledge of the various aspects of managing warehouses and distribution center operations.

Key topics covered in the Distribution Logistics Operations Course include:

•  An overview of the differences between warehouses and distribution centers in terms of their operations
• The elements of inbound and outbound processes within a facility
• Quality Control and Inspection procedures
• Inventory analysis and management strategies
• The purpose, usage, and selection of a Warehouse Management System
• Building effective internal and external operational partnerships

This course builds on valuable insights from the first three courses in the series: Distribution Logistics Fundamentals, Distribution Logistics Equipment, and Safety & Compliance. It includes engaging learning modules, interactive knowledge checks, and testimonials from industry leaders. Like all courses in the series, Distribution Logistics Operations is a remote learning course that participants can do at their own pace.

Upon completing this Distribution Logistics Operations Course, students will earn a certificate and a digital badge to display on their LinkedIn profiles and email signatures. Completion of all six courses in the Distribution Logistics Education Program culminates in a WERC certificate for warehousing education.

MHI and WERC members receive a discounted rate on the courses. To learn more and enroll in the WERC Distribution Logistics Education Program courses, visit werc.org/getcertified.
