This is a unique and exciting opportunity for driven and enthusiastic Transport and Logistics professionals with Senior Business Management expertise to manage a transport business unit autonomously. Our client is dedicated to supplying the UK market with the highest standard of fresh produce establishing itself as one of the most well-regarded businesses in the sector.
Due to exciting and continued development of the business, you will be responsible for a practically 'standalone' transport business unit within this fresh produce company that serves its own distribution as well as a number of external customers. You will be responsible for not only the day-to-day transport and logistics but also running the commercial aspects as well including full budgetary and P&L responsibility.
You will manage and deliver all aspects of the transport operation including traffic planning & administration, maintaining Operator Licence credibility, managing employed & agency drivers, maintaining and developing a 3rd party customer base, improving efficiency and margin generation.
This is an exciting yet challenging role carrying significant responsibility so you will have to have a strong work ethic as well as an ability to manage autonomously and work flexibly. Significant transport, logistics and distribution experience is essential with a food or ideally agricultural or fresh produce background. It is not essential that you carry an LGV Class 1 licence or a CPC but these would be highly desirable.
