Transport Planning Manager
£40,000 – 45,000
Over in North London I am currently working with a company that is seeing great expansion and it’s no surprise that this business is going places as the culture there is one that is hard to beat.
They are on the lookout for an experienced Transport Manager to lead the fleet and make sure they are loaded with accordingly and arrive on time. You will be responsible for routing and implementation to make sure the company achieves customer expectations.
This will be a hands-on role and you will be working closely with the Operational team daily. You will be a people person with a calm manner and not someone who flusters or cracks under pressure easily. Resilience is the key word here!
You will have experience with working in a chilled, ambient, and frozen FMCG operation and have at least 4 years’ experience with managing a team in a distribution environment.
Communication is key in this role so the ability to talk on a level with all members of staff is a must. You will have a keen eye for routing and what works and what doesn’t and be able to adapt to changing circumstances that are out of your control.
You will be measured by how well you maximise the fleet, how you manage routes and how you remedy customer issues should they arise.
You will have a get up and go attitude and have the desire to do the best you possibly can. You will be pivotal in driving change and be pro active in seeking ways to improve service levels.
