LogOnTrain: Logistics Studies Finally Improved with Communication Technologies

The main goal of the project was to support training of logisticians and freight-forwarders in border area vocational schools in Estonia, Latvia and North-West Russia. Within the project period, there were nine partnership meetings, six seminars, three conferences, six professors’ lectures and six master classes and other interesting events carried through.

      


The partnership worked out Information and Communication Technology Work Package to find potential solutions from the field of ICT, and provide a good use of the solutions tailored for the field of logistics.

These recommendations were elaborated for special logisticians training curriculum meeting the demands of the 5th qualification level and this curriculum is in operation in Estonia already. The document describes the possible Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) which could be applied and used in studies for Logistics related curricula. Different kinds of solutions have been developed so as to minimize the human error in calculations and logistics chain processes, which later could cost a lot of money for a company. These ICT solutions are being used in order to increase the productivity and cost savings in different actions in the demand and supply chain.
