During the lectures, techniques used in identifying the different types of fleets and system designs for burden-sharing and route calculations will be addressed, via the methodology of lecture. This will be supported by practical sessions where students are to resolve cases provided by the teacher, which include among others the capillary distribution, frozen goods transport and international transport, redesigning networks, delegations, etc. The teacher will propose the most appropriate bibliographical references for each of the chapters.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

After completing the course, students will be evaluated based on their theoretical and practical knowledge which will account for 75% of the final result.

 

The final exam with a total weight of 75% consists of two distinct parts: theory and problems. The theoretical part has a weigh of 75% in the final grade, while the practical part will account for 20% of the same.

For the students to pass the subject, they should be able to identify the functions to be performed in a traffic department and meeting scheduling tools; learn about the latest telematics systems applied in a transport fleet, recognize management support systems as generators of competitive advantage for a fleet, recognize the parameters that characterize a fleet, learn and develop the right route planning and loads in the interest of efficient management of the fleet, and, finally, to know the programming of transport logistics and calculation methods.

The remaining 5% will depend on the degree of support and active participation during the sessions.
