Also, you can look forward to:

  • Stakeholder management, including collaboration with Operations and Management to ensure seamless coordination and elevate customer satisfaction through Network effiency.
  • Monitoring and analysing key performance indicators (KPIs) to pinpoint areas for improvement and implementing corrective actions for risk management concerning our SuperHubs
  • Change Management in the utilisation/implementation of terminal IT systems, production standards and tools to streamline operations and boost productivity.
  • Ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards
  • Providing regular reports and updates to senior management on the performance of the cross-dock terminal network in Europe.

Moreover, you not only know how to analyse complex data, but you can also identify opportunities for process improvements, and you have proven your ability to meet set goals within schedule and budget constraints.


Also, we expect you to:

  • Possess 7+ years of extensive experience in the transport and logistics industry and knowledge of cross-dock terminals.
  • Hold a degree in logistics, supply chain management, or a related field.
  • Have knowledge of transport and logistics systems, including experience with the use of IT systems (TMS) and optimisation operation tools.
