Transport Planner - Double Day Shifts 6 to 2 and 2 to 10 - Steel Goods Dispatch and Transit - West Bromwich - salary £26k

This West Bromwich based business has grown organically from a small family business to an extremely busy and successful Black Country manufacturing site. The transport function is looking to recruit a Planner due to retirement in a small team of around 4.

The position is based around planning for vehicles coming onto site for both loading and unloading, most of which are from third party hauliers. The company does not run its own fleet of trucks however there will still be a requirement for dealing directly with drivers and customers.
The site is very busy and can have over 200 vehicles per day on site so in this case you will be planning or loading/unloading bay time at several warehouse units. You will be allocating bays to vehicles based upon stock locations so a good understanding of warehouse storage systems will help.

General daily duties will include planning bay space for today and tomorrow, updating customers with expected delivery times and advising of delays, dealing with drivers coming onto site daily and regular communication for planning purposes with the third part haulier.

This is a very busy environment and would suit applicants from a fast paced transport office. Applicants with experience of steel stock holding or similar will be at an advantage. It would also be preferred for you to hold a CPC qualification.
