Freight Forwarder

Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an ambitious individual who is looking to develop their career within the logistics and distribution sector as a Freight Forwarder. You will join a world-class transport and logistics organisation on a full-time, permanent basis in the Dartford area.

The role would suit an individual who has previous transport experience or who has worked as a Freight Forwarder previously and is looking to join an organisation that can provide an environment to support and develop their career.

It is important that you can demonstrate an ability to build positive, professional relationships with a range of hauliers, quickly understand the commercial implications of maximising loads and ensure that goods are shipped with maximum efficiency and profitability. There will be a high degree of client liaison, so exceptional customer service skills will be required to manage a variety of accounts, ensuring they are kept up to date with scheduled deliveries and providing solutions for them should any problems be encountered. You will also have a natural ability to identify commercial opportunities for the company among your client base.

As an individual you will be highly organised and have a systematic approach to your work. You will be comfortable operating in a very fast paced environment and have a pro-active nature to constantly be looking at ways of making improvements. Fluency in a foreign language, (particularly French and/or Polish will be an advantage), as will someone who is detail conscious and can retain a sense of humour!

The opportunity is offered Mon-Fri, days (with a degree of flexibility to manage peaks) and comes with an excellent package and opportunity for career progression.

For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
