Abstract—Many Studies indicate that Germany is the world’s logistics leader. One of its drivers is due to its brilliant logistics education. The purpose of the paper is to show an overview of logistics education in Germany and develop a strategic model for logistics higher education management, aiming to provide a guide for educators to manage logistics higher education. Based on a semi-systematic literature review, the innovative design and dynamical improvement of logistics education was been categorized into five interrelated stages. Using logical framework analysis (LFA) a strategic framework of logistics higher education management is developed. It is explored that the dynamic responsiveness of demand for logistics higher education from the labour market and feedback from the learners are the most important determinants for successful fulfillment of the goals for logistics higher education. Furthermore, the interrelations between the various logical stages for managing logistics higher education were explained. This paper is the first attempt to provide a logical systematic framework of logistics education with a strong focus in Germany. Replication in other countries should be undertaken to validate the framework in the future.
