Target group and Organisation

This training course is aimed at anyone who is interested in or responsible for the organisation, lay-out, supervision, control and management of a warehouse or supply chain. Consultants, accountants, trainers or people with a keen interest for warehousing get their fill here.

If you want to redesign and reorganise your warehouse in a more efficient way with optimal performance, you are at the right place!

The programme consists of a unique mix of interactive workshops and e-learning. As a student, you will gain access to the online Zelco learning platform, where you will find in-depth theory, as well as practical examples and exercises.

During the e-learning you will have time to get acquainted with the concepts that will be discussed in the following workshop and be able to put them into practice in advance. Additionally, you will have access to an online forum, where questions and discussion threads can be exchanged between fellow students and the teacher. This will create a strong group dynamic both on- and offline.

The 5 workshops are organised at fixed times in which both the instructor and the students take part. The workshops are focused on providing further clarification of the theory and on making more complex exercises aimed at the practical application in an actual working environment. Experiences are exchanged between course members, and active participation with an open dialogue between instructors and students is always central to our workshops.

A company tour to visit an actual warehouse workplace is also provided during or after the course. Students are notified as soon as a date for this excursion has been set.
