The role of a Logistics Manager can encompass a variety of tasks, depending on the nature of the business and the particular responsibilities of the job.
As a Logistics Manager, you may be overseeing charges such as warehousing, transport, compliance, process standardisation and inventory control - or a combination of different elements of the supply chain.
In any case, the job plays a key part in business success and you will be responsible for keeping costs down, sticking to agreed schedules and helping ensure client satisfaction - both internally and externally.
Of course, every Logistics Manager job is different, but typical tasks include developing processes, implementing strategies for best practice and seeking ways to make improvements. You will also need to report on key performance indicators and deal with any issues that may arise in your areas of responsibility.
Successful candidates will usually have a minimum of three to four years Warehousing or Transport Management experience. Communication, organisation and negotiation skills are all essential and a good understanding of the various technologies, computer software and systems used within the industry is a must.
Those applying for jobs as Logistics Managers should also be excellent leaders, able to delegate tasks effectively and comfortable reporting and presenting to stakeholders, employees and clients.
