European Road Freight Planner

Road Freight Export Planner (Automotive Industry)
Staffordshire – Cannock
Mon – Fri 08:30 – 17:30
£25,000 – £32,000 (Depending on experience)

Due to recent growth, an excellent opportunity for an experienced Export Coordinator has become available. This is a great juncture for any individual looking to grow their career in Freight Forwarding and is especially interesting as the product is automotive, specifically luxurious car parts. The office is a bustling stretch with over 50 staff in house, though the Automotive Team is comprised of nine.

With over 75 years of proven performance across 9 sites within the UK, and more than 30,000 employees worldwide, my client is forward thinking, market disrupting and has a very strong ethos in company values, holding a genuine interest in their staff and their well-being.

The Package

  • Up to £32,000 (DOE)
  • Large modern office
  • 22 days holiday p/a + bank holidays, increase annually
  • On-site Parking
  • 2x Salary Life Cover
  • 5% employer contribution pension scheme

The Role

Ideally the successful candidate will have European Road Freight experience with an export bias though my client is open to seeing candidates with experience in other modes of freight and those with import experience only. Computer literacy, strong customer service, being able to maintain focus under pressure are all a must in this demanding yet rewarding work environment.

Key Competencies

  • Organising collections from suppliers from all over the UK and Ireland.
  • Planning export trailers to Germany but also Czech Republic and Slovakia, with time sensitive multi-drop deliveries.
  • Utilising round trip trailers that are available within the contract but also sourcing one-way hauliers and negotiating spot rates when required.
  • Achieving strict delivery deadlines and customer requirements.
  • Preparing driver packs and paperwork for deliveries including all custom documentation requirements for drivers.
