£Competitive Car Allowance Bonus Benefits
Actual Job Location: South East Asia
We're seeking a high-profile individual to lead the further development and optimisation of multi-site logistics operations for one of South East Asia's largest grocery retailers. This role is perfect if you have experience leading large scale, complex projects in an international environment with primarily FMCG retail clients.
The ideal candidate will be responsible for managing multiple automated and semi-automated composite distribution centres. With experience as a 3PL General Manager or Site Operational Leader/Director this position requires an individual who can provide strategic leadership while improving the operational performance of the warehousing and transport logistics operations.
As Senior Operations Director, you will be responsible for leading a team committed to providing unparalleled service and support by delivering on challenging KPIs. Alongside this, you'll work closely with the VPs of key clients to build out an excellent client-focused approach while driving growth across the business. Therefore you will demonstrate a strong expertise in commercial and key account management within 3PL contract logistics.
To succeed in this role, you will be university degree educated in a business, logistics, or engineering discipline, and may have benefitted from an in-depth management development programme either with a large 3PL or a food/grocery retailer. This will have encompassed a series of 3PL operational leadership roles covering both warehousing and transport.
In addition, you should be able to demonstrate project work culminating in your current or most recent senior operational role as a GM/Regional Manager or Director of one or more DCs. Ideally, large scale multi-temperature FMCG retail NDCs or RDCs employing at least 300-1000 staff.
With complementary skills in project management and continuous improvement, you will have the skills to reduce costs while increasing efficiencies. You'll be able to take on new site openings and large-scale physical or systems redesigns without any problem because of your expertise with fully functional operations, delivering high levels of accuracy within retail distribution centres.
You are a strategic and commercially minded individual with experience in shaping plans and implementing cost-saving initiatives in large retail FMCG operations. You have successfully led teams through periods of change as they improved their performance while achieving results that met or exceed business goals. Ultimately, you'll have the desire to progress to VP level in our client's business, shaping the company for the future.
Our client feels the ideal candidate for this role will have a degree in business, logistics, or engineering and be resilient, with an energetic personality that can embrace challenges. In addition, you'll need to be committed to business success, and your previous development reviews will indicate you're already a high-potential leader.
Operationally, you'll take charge of all the aspects of our client's warehousing and distribution business. This includes running a retail pick, pack, and despatch operation and a multi-drop primary transport function. In addition, your team are responsible for delivering goods on time at competitive prices within budget while maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction every step along the way.
You'll need excellent financial management skills to manage the £60m business under your control. A challenging task, but your unparalleled attention, detail and self-control drive will serve you well.
Previous experience of working abroad or extended periods of travel to APAC, Middle East or other developing/emerging markets will be highly advantageous but not a prerequisite. However, you will need to be able to adapt to a different cultural style quickly. Your people management and leadership approach will respect loyalty and engenders trust whilst remaining highly results-driven and focused on success.
Our client offers a competitive salary (low tax) and benefits such as a car, bonus, pension, healthcare and fantastic career development. In addition, relocation assistance will be provided, including short-term rental support and school fees.
To apply without delay and for a confidential discussion, please send your CV in word format, quoting reference LX 1035143 for the attention of Roheela Khan Telephone 00 44 (0) 1905 381 320 www.martinveasey.com
COUNTRY HEAD OF ROAD TRANSPORTATION - THIRD PARTY CONTRACT LOGISTICS
US $ Executive Salary Bonus Excellent Benefits including relocation, flights, housing, school fees
Those two words will fill you with either horror or joy.
If it's horror, sorry, you're not the person we're looking for in this role. However, if your eyes have lit up and your brain has kicked into fifth gear after hearing them, you're probably the kind of person our client wants for this role.
Because it's like no other role you've had before.
Our client is a major player in global freight and shipping and wishes to develop its contract logistics function on the back of their freight and shipping operations in Vietnam. As such, they need someone with an exceptional skill set to head up the land transportation part of the operation.
And that's where you'll come in. To create this from scratch.
As the Country Head of Transportation Contract Logistics, your focus will be entirely on land transportation, and you will need to set the whole operation up, including:
- Transport network design
- Control tower
- Haulier/vendor relationships
- Fleet compliance and branding
- Health and safety.
As such, you must be able to demonstrate relatively recent, previous experience in setting up a contract logistics road transportation operation in an emerging market, e.g. SE Asia, including Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, China, India, Middle East, Eastern Europe or Latin America.
Our client has prioritised road freight/haulage as the first objective, then using barges, then rail. As the Vietnam operation is in its infancy, vendor selection will be critical to your success in this role. You will need to adopt a 3PL/4PL model, creating robust relationships with local vendors. In doing so, you'll be assessing which vendors have the ideal coverage for different parts of the country and the right fleet, or if they can scale up and invest in more fleet to support your contract transport operations.
Our client is realistic in their ambition for this project and sees it as a three to five-year plan to become fully operational. So, although your current location isn't important, you must be prepared to relocate to Vietnam. Our client will fully support this with all the resources available to a company of their size.
As you can imagine, this certainly isn't a generic role, and there's plenty more detail we need to discuss, so start the ball rolling by sending your CV, quoting reference LX 1035178 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.
VP Transportation – APAC
US/£/€Very Competitive Six Figure Base Salary + Bonus + Blue Chip Benefits + Relocation Assistance
South East Asia
You may think you’re a big hitter in transportation and logistics but are you ready to up your game?
Can you build on your success in your current territory and take it to an emerging market? Would you like to impart your knowledge of best practice and develop a large, complex third-party contract logistics operation in a different country?
What if there was an opportunity to head up a 3PL operation in South East Asia? And be relocated as well?
Enough of the questions. As an experienced VP/Senior Director of Transportation with an outstanding career in 3PL and in-house, you may be the person they need.
Ideally, you’ll be degree qualified in a relevant discipline, and your background will be from retail, grocery, or FMCG. Importantly, you’ll be able to demonstrate the effective management of complex 3PL or in-house operations of at least 1000 vehicles across multiple sites.
Suppose you’ve worked in Europe, the US, or the APAC region. In that case, you’ll be used to operating across multiple areas with different borders and infrastructures, and that’s important as our client needs someone who can quickly adapt to different cultures and procedures.
If you’ve previously headed up a 3PL operation and then moved to an in-house role with a large, multi-national operation, that could work as well. The nature of the cluster means a broad scope of supply, covering retail, fmcg, eCommerce, pharma, technology network, from the major cities and conurbations all the way through to the tourist hubs around the region. As such, the operations are complex, and there are significant strategic and operational challenges in coordinating all these varied activities.
As you can imagine, this certainly isn’t a generic role, and there’s plenty of detail we’ll need to discuss, so start the ball rolling by sending your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference LX 703438
