Whether a business is supplying stock to corporate customers or as part of a home delivery service, the Transport Manager is responsible for ensuring orders get delivered safely, efficiently and on time.
Of course, the role will vary from company to company, but in most cases, this will involve developing best practice procedures, implementing guidelines and continually monitoring and analysing key performance indicators to ensure customer satisfaction.
Tasks may include investigating incidents, providing briefings and reporting to stakeholders on a regular basis. You will also be responsible for ensuring that all activities adhere to legal requirements and company policies.
In addition, as a Transport Manager, you will be in charge of a team, so it’s likely the job will encompass scheduling staff, motivating the team and providing relevant training and coaching. Interviewing potential new team members and carrying out regular performance reviews may also be part of your job remit.
If you’re applying for a role as a Transport Manager, excellent communication skills are a must and you should be capable of leading a team in a sometimes stressful and always busy working environment.
A strong understanding of the systems and software used in the day-to-day job can also be also beneficial.
Finally, a customer-focussed attitude is essential and you should always be looking for ways to improve efficiencies and drive performance to a higher level.

Bury is situated at the northern point of Greater Manchester, outside the M60 with green, rolling countryside to its north. Although the town of Bury has a population of around 60,000, it is surrounded by settlements that form the metropolitan borough of Bury, home to closer to 200,000 people. Bury was a market town until the Industrial Revolution, when it threw itself wholeheartedly into the milling and weaving industries, and the town thrived, helped by the arrival of the canal and railway network in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Decline in Bury was quite severe as the cotton industry moved abroad, and by 1990 even the railway link to Manchester had been closed down. The town did go back to its roots somewhat and became a shopping and light manufacturing area, but its main purpose was to be a satellite and commuter town for Manchester. Bury Market has survived through thick and thin, however, and in these days of supermarkets and online shopping it is bucking the trend by not only being one of the largest open-air markets in the UK but also by actually growing. This trend was helped in 1992 when the old railway was repurposed as a Metrolink tram line right into the heart on Manchester.
Bury is quite often the source of Transport Manager jobs nowadays. The town is pretty well connected by road, with the M60, M62 and M66 nearby, and the large commercial areas of Manchester, Salford, Bolton and Rochdale all within striking distance. Although it remains an important commuter town for Manchester, industry and retail do play their parts in the local economy.
