Logistics Analyst - Middlesex

Logistics Analyst jobs

The logistics analyst will be in charge of setting up and/or running systems within a complex logistics operation to gather data on the complete process of movement and warehousing of goods and seeking efficiencies in them. The work could well require a good deal of travel to overseas or national terminals, depots and warehouses to see processes first hand and gather information on operation.

The gathered data will be used to work out means of creating more efficient processes and systems, often through the use of sophisticated computer systems, but also through the analyst’s instinct for the task. The analyst will be reporting regularly to senior management, and must be able to identify targets for efficiency makeovers and back up the plans with hard facts and figures.

Explaining actions and helping to implement major structural and operational changes will help to keep the logistics team informed and involved. The search for new efficiencies is a never-ending task, but with an analytical approach, it can be successfully done to the benefit of the company. Hence, good analysts are highly valued members of any logistics operation.

The skills required

Needless to say, an analyst must possess excellent analytical skills and be able to have an instinct for positive changes as well as the ability to perform complex calculations when planning out potential improvements. She or he must be able to keep on top of many lines of data collection; this information might be gleaned from delving into operational data or the analyst might oversee a team to gather information. Therefore good IT skills and man management are essential.

Logistics analysts are often required to travel, perhaps internationally, so a commitment to the company will be a demonstrable necessity.

One of the smallest of England's historic counties, Middlesex was abolished in the 1960s and most of the region became part of the Greater London area.

The London boroughs that are today known as Barnet, Ealing, Haringey, Hounslow, Hillingdon, Enfield, Brent, and Richmond upon Thames, were once part of Middlesex. While other counties that absorbed bits of the region included Hertfordshire, Surrey and Berkshire.

These days, the area that was once known as Middlesex is thriving, and it benefits greatly from its proximity to the capital. It's also a great place to find Logistics Analyst vacancies.
