Transport Manager - Hereford

Transport Manager jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

Transport Manager Jobs in Hereford

Herefordshire is a county full of small towns, as is proved by the fact that its county town, Hereford, has a population of just 55,000 and is the county’s most populous settlement. It is located right in the middle of the county, which is wedged between Wales to the west and Worcestershire to the east. The town itself is 45 miles (73 km) south west of Birmingham, the same distance south of Shrewsbury and 25 miles (40 km) north west of Cheltenham. The nearest motorway is the M50, which comes to an abrupt stop 10 miles from the city limits.

One of the reasons for Herefordshire’s low population is that the county is largely agricultural; the Hereford is one of the UK’s most famous cattle breeds. Hereford cider is also well known. We all remember Woodpecker Cider, Hereford lightning … Don’t we? Hereford was a market town as well as a centre for religion and governance.

In modern times, Hereford is a hard working town, and still has a reputation for brewing and agricultural products. Bulmers makes Strongbow, Bulmers Cider and the aforementioned Woodpecker, but there are also Spinning Dog brewery, Wye Valley brewery and Weston’s Cider to keep the locals occupied (some of it makes it out of town too). With such a strong and popular market for nationally known products, Hereford could be a good place to seek Transport Manager work at the moment.
