Logistics Manager J-648
Our client is a fast growth group of businesses who buy in materials and finished product from the Far East and Europe before adding value in the UK and shipping to customers worldwide.
Due to the business growth, which has been driven both organically and through acquisition, a new opportunity exists for a Logistics Manager to join the business and manage the carrier relationships that drive both the inbound and outbound supply chain. The role of the Logistics Manager will be to manage and optimise these relationships in terms of both the commercial relationships and the processes in order to derive better value and a more cost effective operation.
Duties will involve but are not limited to:
- Create efficiency in the movement of goods across the end to end supply chain, including incoming deep sea freight and outgoing carrier relationships.
- Rationalise and negotiate more beneficial commercial arrangements with all carriers across the group companies.
Develop internal relationships with Purchasing, Planning & Warehouse teams to become an active benefit to the management group.
- Ensure logistics agreements are fully utilised across all stakeholders within the group companies to ensure cost savings are delivered.
This is a fast paced business expediting same day and next day deliveries in many cases; so the successful candidate will be a strong commercial negotiator, used to operating in a busy, demanding and fast paced environment, who has the gravitas to deal with people at all levels and the experience to understand where the priorities lie.
