Transport Manager, Stoke on Trent, c£28,000pa
My client is one of the most dynamic companies in the area, with a fully justified reputation for quality of both product and service. As part of their growth plans, they are looking to recruit an experienced transport manager to a role responsible for all their outgoing deliveries to their varied, UK wide customer base.
You must be a good communicator and problem solver, able to interact closely with sales, the contract team and manufacturing to ensure that the finished products are delivered in a timely and cost effective manner. You will have had experience of selecting and managing a range of external transport providers, ensuring both that service levels accurately reflect the company's own standards and that you are delivering cost savings to the business on an ongoing basis.
It would be highly beneficial to have worked in an environment where there is no “standard” load size and to have existing relationships with a range of providers with varying load-carrying capabilities.
