About this discipline

Logistics really is everywhere! Just think of the supermarket (coffee from Ethiopia, kiwis from New Zealand and bananas from Colombia), the shopping streets (fashionable garments with labels “Made in Bangladesh” or “Made in Turkey”) and that mobile phone you bought was really not made in Belgium, but perhaps somewhere in China or Japan.

The world is small thanks to logistics!

Do you wonder how all those products get to 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 digital skills will be honed and you will get a good basic knowledge of transport and logistics. During the internship period, you can get a taste of what it is like to work in the logistics (and maritime) sector.

We also focus on the Port of Antwerp, a huge gateway with challenging job opportunities. Thanks to the work experience you gain during your traineeship, you will immediately have an edge on the job market!

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