Farmlands is the largest farmer owned co-operative in the country found at over 80 locations nationwide. A fast growing and agile company, at Farmlands our people are an integral part of what we do.
Everyone who works here can make a difference to our shareholders and we are focused on creating a working environment that allows them to do exactly that, every day.
We're constantly thinking about how we can do things differently and have recently commenced overhauling our strategy for delivery goods to farm, in what is affectionately known as our 'freight to gate' project.
A lot of the thinking has been done, and we're now on the hunt for some new team members to operationalise and execute the plan!
As the Freight Distribution Manager, you're ultimately responsible for the planning and scheduling of deliveries nationwide, that meets the service requirements for our outbound customer deliveries.
Leading a team of Transport Co-ordinators and working closely with the Freight Operations Manager, you'll ensure maximum productivity is being obtained through innovative scheduling practices, market leading transport management systems and will be constantly looking for optimisation opportunities.
We're looking for an expert who knows how to get product delivered efficiently. With a transport / logistics background, ideally in fleet scheduling and planning, you'll have finesse for continuous improvement and optimisation and a track record of leading a team to success.
You'll also be an exceptional communicator with the ability to engage with a range of stakeholders.
What's in it for you?
