On Wednesday, 25th August 2021, the second year students of the Bsc. Supply Chain and Operations Management students at Strathmore University Business School had an industrial visit to the  Kuehne Nagel Warehouses at Sunflag Industrial Park, Syokimau along Mombasa Road. The students were accompanied by their Lecturers; Linda Susan Ingari and Felix Mogesa.

Kuehne+Nagel Ltd. is a Fourth Party Logistics Provider (4PL) specializing in Warehousing, Inventory Management, Customs Clearance, Transport, Distribution, and Innovative Solutions. The purpose of the Industrial visit was for the students to appreciate the practical aspects of the theory learned in class during the Warehousing and Inventory Management and Transport and Logistics Management Units.

During  the visit, the students were taken through the issuing and receiving process; the warehouse activities, the roles of the warehouse staff; the key performance indicators; the warehouse layout and design, security, and safety in the warehouse, warehouse management system, transport management and reverse logistics. Due to COVID-19 protocols, the students were divided into two groups in the morning and in the afternoon.  The students interacted with the Warehouse Operations Manager, Warehouse Supervisors and the Warehouse Management System administrators.
