Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Transport (Planning) Manager to join a world-class 3PL and distribution business on a full-time, permanent basis in Northants. This is a truly exciting time to join the company, recognised as one of the top 10 global logistics providers, as they continue to successfully expand their portfolio of clients.

Directly reporting into the General Manager, you will be responsible for leading the transport planning operation ensuring that daily operational objectives are achieved and that performance targets are achieved. It is very much about identifying areas of continuous improvement, always with a focus on the customer.

It is essential that you possess excellent communication, organisational, planning and relationship building skills as you will manage the workload of several sites in the area via the transport planning system and will work very closely with and manage a number of third-party hauliers. This will include reacting to unforeseen problems, managing the most efficient routes, close liaison with your customers, stakeholders and key contacts within the business. You will take responsibility for KPI management, H&S and all personnel related matters with regards to the planning teams' progress, personal development, training requirements, appraisals and disciplinary.

A 3PL background is essential as is your manager CPC. A flexible approach and passion for the job and the people with whom you work are key qualities. In essence, someone with fire in their belly, who cares about delivering on objectives.

Opportunities within the business are very genuine.
