    Creating optimal transport planning schedules can be challenging. Do you have excellent planning and time management skills and can you easily handle complex requirements? Join our Transport Planning department

    The Transport Planning department is the beating heart of Samskip: it is where all transport is planned by selecting the modalities that fit our customer’s needs.

    As a Transport Planner, your excellent accountability skills ensure that all collections and deliveries are undertaken at agreed times to meet customer and budget requirements. You will be involved in planning traffic movements, ensuring that collections and deliveries match customer requirements, and instruct hauliers with the approved haulier listing. In addition, you will also be responsible for monitoring the terminal out gate times and liaise with hauliers.

    Some other responsibilities as a Transport Planner include:

    • Ensuring that all additional ancillary costs are updated in the systems, such as toll fees and driver assistance payments.
    • Providing excellent customer service internally and externally by resolving issues raised by clients, in conjunction with work colleagues in the UK and Europe.
    • Liaising with the booking department in order to establish both daily and weekly import volumes.
    The organisational talent we are looking for fits the following profile

    You are determined to create optimal planning schedules for our customers by constantly communicating with hauliers and colleague operators. You are flexible and can easily handle complex requests, changing plans and delayed deliveries. Although you will be working fixed hours, we want you to be flexible: sometimes we need you to be on standby during evenings, weekends or in absence of colleagues.

    You tick all of the following boxes:

    • Experience as a transport planner or familiarity with planning management is preferable.
    • Excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office software.
    • Outstanding communication skills in English.
