Welcome to the Cranfield Centre for Logistics and
Supply Chain Management (CLSCM)
The Cranfield Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (CLSCM) based in the Cranfield School of Management, provides an international focal point for advanced teaching and research in the field of logistics, supply chain management and transportation management.
CLSCM has grown up with twin beliefs:
- that logistics has increasingly become a dominant activity in the development of the modern world and in our twentieth century way of life
- that effective management of the total supply chain is an essential ingredient for business success as the global market place becomes a reality.
A key feature of CLSCM's work is its increasingly global scope. Much of its work has an international dimension and this is reflected in its established links with leading centres in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
The Centre offers a number of programmes, short courses, both open to the public and customised, tailored to specific company needs as well as research opportunities in logistics, distribution and transportation. These include:
"Cranfield School of Management is one of 20 UK business schools in the Financial Times Top 75 European schools. It is the only school in the Top 75 that has a comprehensive suite of open programmes in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. These programmes draw on faculty's extensive experience in conjunction with delegates to transform knowledge into action."
