Description

Established for over 50 years, this specialist food manufacturing, import and distribution business are entering a period of growth and are looking to appoint an experienced Transport Manager to contribute to the next stage of expansion by professionally managing the Transport function.

The Role

Working 5 out of 6 days (Monday to Saturday), flexibility required.

This is a pivotal role within the Transport function and the individual appointed will manage a mixed 35 vehicle fleet. The Transport Manager will be responsible for ensuring compliance to VOSA regulations, including service records, driver related issues and all departmental procedures. There will be a further requirement to ensure all transport processes meet company safety, legal and operational policies.

The Transport Manager will assist in the optimisation of logistics planning and efficient working. You must have a credible knowledge of the issues facing the business in the short, medium and long term and will be able to motivate your workforce in overcoming transport and logistical challenges.

The appointed Manager will be given the autonomy to develop and implement departmental systems and apply a hands-on management style. The Transport Manager will work closely with several different departments, communicating clearly and using their experience to anticipate future challenges and workloads within the Transport department.

A good knowledge of route planning and computer routing systems would be advantageous but not essential as you will be liaising with the planning department to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of goods in a multi drop / multi temp environment. Dealing with a varied array of products from Frozen, Chilled, and Ambient, you must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of Food Safety and Hygiene regulations.

The Person

You will be confident, self-motivated and resourceful with strong planning and problem solving skills. This role represents a superb opportunity to join a growing business where your commitment and leadership will be well rewarded, both financially and with career development opportunities. Ref 2738
