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 quoting reference LX 703438
