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 applications@martinveasey.com quoting reference LX 703438

SUPPLY CHAIN DIRECTOR

 

£100,000 Car Allowance + Bonus + Blue Chip Executive Benefits

 

West Midlands

 

"A blank canvas."

 

As an experienced Supply Chain Director, these words may fill you with horror or excitement. If it's the former, then there's no point in you reading any further. Sorry, but that's the reality.

 

Because we're looking for the latter. Someone who relishes the idea of creating a complete and robust supply chain practically from scratch.

 

Our client is a division within a market-leading group of companies with a £100m turnover and around 14,000 SKUs. They're incredibly successful but know they need a total overhaul of their supply chain and procurement strategies to improve their business.

 

That's where you come in.

 

Possibly from an automotive, FMCG, global retail or wholesaling background, you'll be able to use your experience in managing a international supply chain to full effect. Our client's products are designed in the UK then 95% of them are manufactured in China. As such, you will need experience in managing the supply of parts and products from Asia.

 

More than anything, they need structure and strategy. The critical issues you'll need to focus on, are creating a formal S&OP team, establishing a World-Class strategic procurement function, and creating KPIs like OTIF to ensure next-day order fulfilment. Alongside overhauling the procurement function, you'll also need to review the cost-effectiveness of the current freight and logistics model.

 

It really is a blank canvas for you to paint your masterpiece.

 

As you can imagine, there's a much larger discussion to be had on the details of the role. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 764947 or call us on 01905 381 320 for a confidential discussion.
