Logistic Coordinator

Job description

Complex situations, hectic, adaptability, international playing field, planning and logistics. Are these words that make you smile? We are looking for a

Logistic coordinator

As a logistics coordinator, you are the link between our customers and the carriers. From the point at which the customer places his orders, you match these with the correct carrier. If the usual carrier can't help, you look for an alternative! 'No' isn't an option, because we work within the liquid foodstuff industry.

Your role is that of an operational planner, but differs slightly in that you do not manage drivers, but you are the link between the customer and our database of carriers. You are responsible from the first to the last mile: for a single order placed by a customer, you may sometimes have to plan several different carriers and connect them to one another.
You are responsible for the correct delivery of the right requirements to the carrier. Such as where and when loading and unloading must take place and what requirements are laid down in relation to the tank container. You monitor the progress of your shipments: when there is a risk of things going wrong, you take action! If a carrier is late, potentially causing production downtime at the destination, you resolve this! If a carrier or customer claims additional expenses, you deal with the customer or carrier to resolve this!
