£50-60000 (Dependent on Experience) Excellent Benefits including Private Healthcare

 

North West London

 

 

Do you crave variety in your job? Are you finding yourself doing the same routine tasks and wishing your logistics management skills were being challenged?

 

How would you like to be a part of a $10bn company that moves everything from pallets of sugar to large, out-of-gauge machinery around the APAC, EMEA, and Indian sub-continent?

 

Our client is a UK-based division of that sizeable multi-national company.

To that end, your contacts with major shipping lines in the Far East, Asia, Middle East, and NW Europe routes will be invaluable to help you succeed in this role.

 

Around 60% of our business is with internal group companies and 40% with external customers, so you'll be able to test your communications skills, liaising between those internal and external customers, shipping lines, port agents, and freight forwarders. With many of our products being for the engineering and manufacturing sector, you'll be required to liaise with internal engineering teams to understand the exact nature of the bespoke plant and equipment you'll need to move.

You'll also have the opportunity to flex your commercial muscles in creating the most cost-effective shipping routes for all our customers.

 

Our client envisages you will be of graduate calibre and will have significant experience with moving OOG equipment, flat rack, heavy lifts, and breakbulk cargo, as well as containerised cargo. In addition, you'll understand the various countries' customs systems and documentation and have experience with claims management processes. Experience with SAP would be ideal but not essential.

 

As you can imagine, there's a much larger discussion to be had on the details of this role. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference 883706

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
