About this discipline

Did you know that the logistics sector in Belgium accounts for more than 120,000 jobs? And that the port of Antwerp generates almost 150,000 jobs?

Logistics is everywhere! Just think of the supermarket, where you find all kinds of tasty products, like coffee from Ethiopia, kiwis from New Zealand and bananas from Colombia. In chain shops such as H&M and Zara, you will find fashionable garments with labels “Made in Bangladesh” or “Made in Turkey”. And that mobile phone you bought in the Mediamarkt is not made in Belgium, but probably somewhere in China or Japan. The world is a small place!

Do you wonder how all those products get to the shops or companies in perfect condition? Would you like to put together a whole route to send a product from here to the other side of the world (or vice versa)? Then choose this specialisation year!

Your language and computer skills will be refined and you will gain a good basic knowledge of transport and logistics. During the internships, you get a taste of what it is like to work in logistics. We also focus on the port of Antwerp, a huge gateway with challenging job opportunities. The work experience you gain during your internship will give you a leg up on the job market!

Would you like to work in this fascinating sector? Then this course is an ideal preparation.
