About our Client

Our client is an iconic consumer goods organisation with their Australian operations based out of Melbourne's western suburbs. They have an exciting opportunity now available for a proven logistics professional in the capacity of Transport Manager.

About the Role

Reporting through to the General Manager of Supply Chain and leading a small team, the Transport Manager will be responsible for managing the performance of a complex national distribution network through a number of key third party logistics providers. In addition to the management of a national freight budget, the Transport Manager will oversee the operational performance of 3PL's through newly created scorecards and dashboards. Key considerations in this position will be the ongoing creation and execution of a B2C logistics strategy given COVID19 impacts, 3PL's performance to budget (and cost management), and initiatives to continue to keep this organisation at the forefront of customer-centricity.

Skills & Experience

The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record of success in managing a transport or broader logistics network in a B2B and B2C environment, ideally from the consumer goods or retail industry sectors. You will be an effective leader of people, negotiator and influencer and have the ability to work effectively in a sometimes-ambiguous environment. Tertiary qualifications in supply chain would be well-regarded.
