Due to secondment we have a great opportunity for a Transport Manager with up-to-date knowledge of transport legislation and previous experience of managing a large multi-temperature transport operation.

You will be joining a successful management team at a depot servicing the retail sector. The main priorities of your role will be the co-ordination of the transport operations to ensure the timely, efficient and cost-effective delivery of multi-temperature products. It goes without saying that we seek a highly experienced transport professional with well-honed operational abilities gained within a high-volume, multi-temperature environment. Ideally, you will be CPC qualified and fully conversant with up-to-date transport legislation and the Working Time Directive. Furthermore, you will have a contagious passion for continuous improvement; the kind of individual who constantly strives to improve operational efficiencies and fleet performance whilst minimising costs. You will allocate resources, organise schedules and ensure that robust planning is in place to meet agreed service levels. You will be a compelling leader who promotes a customer centric ethos and is able to develop and motivate a large transport team to improve performance. H&S, safe working practices, high standards of hygiene and high levels of security within the working environment will also appear high on your list of priorities.

If you are confident in your ability to bring a wealth of transport experience to this fast-paced operation, then Bis Henderson Recruitment encourages you to apply without delay as our client is eager to make an appointment.
