Do you have ocean freight experience with a local forwarder?
Are you tired of being overlooked and under-appreciated? Feeling like a number?
Want to learn more, do more, contribute more – do you want more file handling ownership?
If the answer is yes to the above, this is the opportunity that’s right for you. Fast growing local freight forwarding business has seen substantial growth in the last 12 months – increasing its internal team from 13 to 20 staff – with plans to keep expanding…
With the reassurance of security in a company which has been established for over 30 years, what’s also on offer here is a chance to keep growing in a new phase of the companies plans.
In and amongst a team with the right balance of experienced, and fast-learning – your existing knowledge of ocean freight operations will put to good use, you will already recognise relevant documentation (cert of origin/ bill of lading/ packing list/ commercial invoice etc) but you will have the opportunity to take full ownership of your client files, ensuring cargo process and care is handled by you – for the lifecycle of its journey.
As an excellent communicator, you will be used to handling situations in ever changing circumstances. With a keen eye for detail, and commitment to process – you will also have that strong desire to be your clients trusted logistics go-to partner – then deliver.
Any exposure to multifreight, cargowise, CNS, Destin8, or other internal freight softwares is required, knowledge of customs is desirable (Descartes. CHIEF, Sequoia, or similar).
Own car is essential due to location
If you are hungry to learn more this is an excellent opportunity to step up that knowledge and responsibility. If you are already used to full 360 degree file handling role – but you feel your surroundings are a little stale – this vibrant and welcoming culture could provide an platform to feel re-energised!
