A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Transport professional to join a hugely successful distribution business. You will join a busy, fast paced transport department on a full time permanent basis, managing the 1pm - 9.30pm shift, Mon - Fri.
Reporting directly into the Director of European Transportation, the role would suit a competent and professional Transport Supervisor / Transportation Lead with real ambition to assist in the continued growth of this very dynamic business. Ideally you will have experience having worked for 3PL organisations previously, and ideally a good understanding and exposure of working with on-site customers. This is a very diverse role and would suit an individual who genuinely wants to make a difference and who thoroughly enjoys the buzz of a transport department. You will liaise with drivers on a daily basis, build relationships with 3PL partners, track in-bound, on-time performance against the daily plan, forecast required e-commerce trailer and shipping requirements, identify opportunity to reduce cost as well as analyse current and historical data to monitor trends and drive improvements.
In essence you will work closely with the first shift transportation supervisor to drive changes in procedures, resources and short-term strategies, in order to improve hub performance.
This is a really great environment in which to work and a fantastic team of which to be part. As an individual, you will enjoy the camaraderie of working with very team focused, supportive colleagues, and thrive on going the extra mile (and being recognised for this). A very honest, straight forward individual, who is passionate about wanting to get the job done, who enjoys a relaxed yet professional environment will excel in this environment. There is real prospect for you to really grow this role and make it your own.
This is an exciting time to join the organisation and make a very positive career step. For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
