You must be driven with a good eye for detail, highly organised and with great time management skills, as you will be ensuring a “best in class” delivery service against set SLAs whilst working closely with the Distribution Centre to ensure all orders/services are carried out correctly.

• Inbound Deliveries – ensuring booking requests from freight forwarders are managed in a timely manner and the client inbound log/internal booking sheet is updated and maintained
• B2C Orders – responding to escalations raised, proactively managing B2C order exceptions (i.e. back orders/address issues) and ensuring clients are made aware of any stock issues (insufficient inventory)

• Liaising in a professional manner with clients/suppliers/warehouse operatives via phone and email
• Resolving problems/customer queries in a timely manner to avoid operational delays
• Maintaining a close relationship with clients/carriers/freight forwarders
• Ensuring deadlines are met and all records/documents are kept updated
• Supporting projects and new initiatives developed within the team and, where appropriate, taking responsibility for the delivery of projects
• Any other duties as required (i.e. monthly KPI reporting, weekly invoicing)
