Logistics Manager jobs
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.
The skills required
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.
Logistics Manager Jobs in Cornwall
Located in the south-west of England, Cornwall is mainly surrounded by water, although it shares a border with Devon to the east. The region is recognised as a Celtic nation, home to the Cornish people, and many residents in the area believe that it should be allowed to split from England to become the fifth home nation of the UK.
Fishing and agriculture have long been part of the Cornish economy and from the Middle Ages, the mining of tin became one of the most important industries in the region. This continued to grow and in the early 19th century, copper mining also brought wealth to the area.
Within 50 years, however, metal mining started to decline and was replaced by the production of china clay. By the end of the 1990s, mining was almost completely gone from Cornwall.
These days, the Cornish economy mainly relies on agriculture and tourism and those seeking Logistics Manager opportunities will have various options to consider.
Food manufacturing companies like Ginsters, the West Cornwall Pasty Company and Dairy Crest are large employers in the region, while brewing is also a large industry, with Sharp's, Skinners and St Austell being just three of Cornwall's many beer companies.
