Whether an organisation is responsible for getting raw materials to a factory, finished goods to shop shelves, cargo to the other side of the world or dispatching a maintenance crew to do essential repairs, the Logistics Director plays a vital role in the success of a business.
Responsibilities include directing and co-ordinating the various functions of the company to ensure that products and services are delivered on time, within budget and to the right quality standards. This is essential not just for the financial welfare of the enterprise, but also to ensure customer satisfaction.
In most Logistics Director roles, tasks will include preparing and submitting reports such as annual budgets and performance reviews as well as managing inventory, forecasts and delivery of KPI’s.
You will also devise and implement strategies and work to ensure that all relevant legislative requirements and company policies are adhered to in all areas of responsibility.
Typically, a Logistics Director applicant should hold a recognised logistics qualification and be educated to a degree level with significant previous managerial experience.
Excellent communication and negotiation skills are a must and successful candidates should be comfortable making presentations and reporting to clients and senior stakeholders.
You will need to work well as part of a team and leadership skills are a must. Delegating tasks, motivating staff and providing training will all be major parts of the position, no matter which company you work for, so you should be able to do these things with ease.
