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.
