Backhaul Manager - Paisley

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 Paisley

Renfrewshire town Paisley is located in the lowlands of Scotland and is the county town. But for a few fields it is joined to the west side of Glasgow, and is linked to the city by the A761, M8 and two railway lines (accessible at Paisley Canal and Paisley Gilmour Street). The centres of Glasgow and Paisley are about 6.5 miles (10 km) apart. Glasgow International Airport is just to the north of Paisley, rounding off a picture of connectedness that has been with Paisley since the canals came to town.

Nineteenth-century Paisley was well known for its weaving industry, and spawned two world-famous fashions that still bear its name: the droplet pattern called Paisley (which actually has Persian origins) and the Paisley shawl. The massive Anchor Mill still stands as testament to this industrious era. After major refurbishment in the 1990s the mill is now a mixed-use building, with office space and residential units within the dramatic edifice and the original iron bridge still crossing the canal.

Paisley is right in the heart of the action, with Glasgow as a neighbour, great links to the nation and the world, and some of the UK’s most breathtaking scenery on the doorstep. If you’re looking for Backhaul Manager work and you’re already in the Paisley area, you could well be in luck.
