This course is designed to give you an overview of the freight transport market and the way goods are moved both domestically and internationally.

Objectives of this Module

Domestic freight transport is defined as the carriage of goods
with both the first origin and final destination within the United Kingdom. International freight transport is the carriage of goods
with either an origin or destination outside the United Kingdom.
As Great Britain is an island, all international freight must be handled through a port, airport or through the Channel Tunnel, while for Northern Ireland, international freight transport can also involve movements across the land border with the Republic of Ireland.
