Backhaul Manager - Leicestershire
Backhaul Manager jobs
Companies that actively seek out efficiencies in their operations stand themselves in better stead for survival, especially in tough economic conditions. Effective management of backhaul can make an incredible savings which can either be used to increase profitability of the haulier or to offer savings to clients to increase competitiveness.
Good backhaul managers are part logistics experts and part sales agents, constantly on the lookout for potential openings in the efficiency drive, striking logistics deals with businesses close to drop-off locations and their own depots.
Some companies might be new to the concept of backhaul, in which case the backhaul manager might be designing a complete programme from the ground up. Other times, they might be drafted in to replace staff or increase efficiency. Either way, the skills will remain the same: keeping control of budgets and dealing closely with clients and management to continually push efficiency to the limit.
The sales element is just as important, as good backhaul is down to the discovery and development of potential openings, which are essentially new clients. Confidence in selling the proposition is an essential asset in the backhaul manager.
The skills required
The ability to seek out efficiency opportunities and enact them is a vital skill demanded of the backhaul manager. This requires a mathematical analysis of the potential benefits of a potential opening alongside the ability to get the most out of opportunities by making offers to those in need of haulage. For this, candidates must possess analytical and persuasive sides, and be able to balance the two so that the most effort is expended on the most likely and profitable openings.
Moderate computing skills are usually required, most notably spreadsheet and word processor experience. Some experience of accounting will also be of great assistance to candidates.

Located in the East Midlands, Leicestershire shares borders with a number of counties, including Derbyshire, Warwickshire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire.
Some of the main settlements in Leicestershire include Loughborough, Mowbray and Hinckley. There's also Leicester, which is situated right in the middle of the county and serves as the county town. All of these places offer a variety of Backhaul Manager opportunities.
Farming, textile manufacturing and food manufacture have traditionally played an important part in Leicestershire's economy. What's more, various cheeses and pork pies are said to have originated in the area.
As far back as the 14th century, the region has been a centre of industry, with early specialties including bellfounding, sand casting and stained glass. This continued throughout the 19th century, with projects including Great Paul, the largest bell in Britain, which once hung in St Paul's cathedral.
The engineering past of Leicestershire continues to thrive today. Noble Automotive, known for its high-performance sports cars, has its headquarters in Leicester. Meanwhile, Triumph Motorcycles is based in Hinckley.
