a)Design of the Lectures' Syllabus and Contents. The structure of the lectures was determined in order to meet the specific demands of the main target personnel (couriers). Also, the theoretical material structure and contents were developed in order to provide an escalated flow of courier operations (from general to specific) and difficulty (starting from simple and general definitions to more specific procedures and methodologies).
b)Development of the Theoretical Material. In order to develop the theoretical material, a wide bibliographical research was conducted in order to review and select the appropriate content of the lectures. References from the general Logistics sector were selected for the starting lessons, and more specific references to routing procedures and courier operations for the others. The experience in courier operations of the ELTA Courier, the experience of the University of the Aegean in routing procedures, as well the combined experience from the Project MADREL were also used in the development of the material. Additionally, specific case studies were chosen in order to depict the best practices in this domain.
