Transport First Line Manager

Date: 07-Jun-2019

Location: Deeside, GB

Company: XPO Logistics

Logistics done differently.

We’re looking for a Transport First Line Manager to join the team at our busy site in Deeside. You’ll represent XPO on our contract with Iceland Foods and hold direct responsibility for managing the transport plan and ensuring that everything runs as smoothly as possible. As this is a transport operation, it’s not a 9 to 5 – you’ll potentially work both days and nights on an ‘any 5 from 7’ basis, so you’ll need to be flexible with your working hours.

Pay, benefits and more:

We’re looking to offer a salary of up to £28,500 per annum. In addition, we offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), as well as the option to buy additional days. You’ll have access to a variety of high street discounts, as well as a cycle to work scheme, a workplace pension and many other perks.

What you’ll do on a typical day:

  • Manage the daily transport plan and provide the relevant information to drivers
  • Communicate regularly with the warehouse, ensuring vehicles are loaded on a timely basis
  • Monitor compliance and deal with any issues as and when they arise
  • Ensure all administration is completed accurately and effectively

What you need to succeed at XPO:

  • Experience in a transport operation at management or supervisory level
  • Strong knowledge of compliance, driver hours and tachograph law
  • The ability to communicate effectively at all levels
  • Confidence in the use of IT, including Microlise and Microsoft Office programs

Be part of something big.

XPO provides cutting-edge supply chain solutions to the world's most successful companies, including Disney, Pepsi, L'Oreal, Toyota and many others. We’re the fastest-growing transportation company on the Fortune 500 list and we’re just getting started.
