Backhaul Manager - Northumberland
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.

Backhaul Manager Jobs in Northumberland
The most northern of the counties in the north-east of England, Northumberland is bordered by Cumbria, County Durham and Tyne and Wear. It also shares a border with Scotland and has coastline on the North Sea.
Those looking for Backhaul Manager roles in Northumberland will have a variety of opportunities to consider, particularly in the major settlements, such as Morpeth, Ponteland, Prudhoe and Alnwick. Parts of the county are also common choices for those who want to work in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but live away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Northumberland has a tumultuous history. It was occupied by the Angles and Romans, and as an important location in the wars between Scotland and England, the region is known for having more castles than anywhere else in England. Many of these are now popular tourist destinations, such as Lindisfarne, Alnwick and Bamburgh.
The modern economy of Northumberland is predominantly based in tourism, as well as the service sector and retail.
A few large companies have factories in the area. These include SCA Hygiene - once part of Kimberly-Clark, the company manufactures paper products like tissues - and Hammerite Products, which makes paints and paint-thinning products.
Other large companies include Eclipse Translations, Barter Books and Thompsons of Prudhoe. There's also the Sanofi Alnwick Research Centre - it specialises in the research and testing of pharmaceuticals.
