Backhaul Manager - Stirlingshire
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 Stirlingshire
Stirlingshire is a historic county in central Scotland bordered to the north by Perthshire and the south by Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire. Were it not for a few miles of land occupied by Dunbartonshire at its western side, Stirlingshire would stretch all the way from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Clyde. The town of Stirling is located at its eastern side, 22 miles (35 km) north east of Glasgow and 30 miles (50 km)north west of Edinburgh.
Both the east and the west of Stirlingshire come within the catchment areas of Scotland’s two major cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, although there are few large concentrations of population within the county area itself. Stirling’s population is only around 20,000. The best prospects for anyone seeking Backhaul Manager jobs in Stirlingshire is to look to the cities and the larger towns that occupy the land between them, although similar positions have been filled in the past within the county area.
