A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Transport Planner to join an established and successful logistics and distribution business on a full time basis at their Wiltshire site. The company has experienced year on year growth and is keen to hear from talented individuals who are looking to make a mark within the business. There are two current opportunities, both offered on a 4 on 4 off basis (one on days, 6am to 6pm and one on nights, 6pm to 6am, £27K and £29K respectively)
Key to your success as Transport Planner will be your ability to manage the allocation of a large team of drivers (up to 85) to a variety of different routes. It is important that you can effectively manage resource allocation and manage the driving team in the most efficient manner possible. There will be a high degree of driver interaction (which is a mixture of core drivers and agency support personnel), so building strong relationships with them and developing your engagement skills will be essential.
Equally important is your ability to engage with all internal and external customers in a friendly and professional manner to ensure a lasting, positive impression of the delivery service and this will include clear communication with drivers on a regular basis and members of the support team. There will be a requirement for completion of some administrative functions, so strong organisational and communication skills will be a definite requirement.
As an individual, attention to detail and a pro-active nature with an ability to use your initiative will be required. Genuine opportunities for career progression are available within the group.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing business and to really put a stamp on shaping their on-going success. Send your CV for immediate consideration!
