A manufacturer of industrial products sold to companies in the UK and Europe are now looking for a Return Logistics Planner to join their Birmingham based facility. This 400+ strong organisation has their own in-house logistics team that needs to maximise its profitability.
Reporting directly to the Operations Manager, you will be tasked with ensuring that the drivers' return journeys are utilised as much as possible, to avoid 'Empty Mileage'. Once deliveries are made, the drivers currently make their way back to Birmingham with empty wagons. They cover the whole of UK and Europe, so most of these journeys could be exploited to increase their revenue stream, by adding pick-ups and drop-offs.
The successful candidate will ideally have experience of working within a logistics office, though this is not essential. You will need to be comfortable liaising with internal and external stakeholders and be proficient in map reading, as you will need to ensure that any jobs added to the driver's rotas fit within their return journeys.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing organisation supplying the UK and Europe. This will suit anyone who is career focussed as they offer full training and support to their employees.
