Description

This book describes the fundamentals of effective road freight management. It is written by the designer, author and lecturer on the RAU Transport Management courses, which, for many years, have been the required evidence of competence for employment in the road transport industry. His insights and experience has made a major contribution to the knowledge base of a great number of the present senior managers in the Southern African road freight industry.

The book is intended to fill the extensive gap in the practical learning material available to transport supervisors, managers and anyone aspiring to progress in the challenging field of road freight logistics management. This “handbook” is deliberately focussed on the principles and the practical functions of transport management without exploring the complicated and sophisticated programmes such as electronic data interchange (EDI), GPS tracking, algorithm-based scheduling, video monitoring and other high-tech tools.

The book is written for the large number of people who aspire to work in the freight transport industry, but need to understand the basics of transport management, firstly as evidence of competence when seeking employment and then to improve the efficiency and quality of the operations that they manage. The practical examples and recommended practices do not require expensive equipment or systems in order to yield effective results. The functions and standards are equally applicable to the one-man trucker and to a manager of a multi-vehicle operation, in any country.

The focus is on standards, effective monitoring and fact-based decision-making, which are the key to the quantity and quality control of the “product” (road transport), the efficiency of which can only be measured (not stacked and counted) and that offers so much potential for inefficiency, waste and loss.

It is trusted that this book will contribute to the groundswell of action in all countries, to improve the quality of road freight operations. It is designed to be usable in the training of competent managers for the future, either for self-study, or as a textbook.
