With a potential 24/7 stream of activities going on, a logistics branch can be a complex and time-sensitive place to work, which requires a cool head on its manager’s shoulders. A typical branch manager will report directly to the senior management, but these could well be in a different city or country to the branch, making an independent instinct essential while observing strategic goals.
In busy branches the role might include selecting employees and overseeing several departments, such as personnel, operations, security and accounting. In some cases the branch manager can also be responsible for marketing and selling the company’s services on a quasi-autonomous basis, possibly with a dedicated sales team to assist in the task.
By hands-on management and effective delegation of tasks, the branch manager should increase and maintain efficiency while fulfilling the core purpose of the branch. The degree of outside assistance and ongoing instruction that managers have will vary from employer to employer, but as the name suggests, the successful applicant will be expected to run the branch as per the strategic instructions from general management.
Whether the branch manager is directly responsible for every member of staff within the branch or whether he or she is overseeing intermediate levels of management, good interpersonal skills are a must for the branch manager. Should the branch manager be required to promote the company as a whole via the branch, experience in sales and marketing are advantageous.
The manager should also be able to oversee multiple streams of responsibility, both mission critical and auxiliary, and know when delegation is more effective than hands-on management.
