Industry: Building Materials
Argentus is thrilled to be working with a new client in the Building Materials industry. This company has a storied history and track record in the industry, with a major worldwide employee base, and a reputation for sustainability in their production facilities. Today, they’re looking for a National Logistics Manager!
Working out of the company’s facility in Northern Toronto, ON, this National Logistics Manager will manage sourcing for various contracts with multi-modal carriers – with the overall goal of delivering cost savings and continuous improvement in the company’s national Logistics function. You will analyze the company’s current strategies for deliveries and distribution, and work to optimize that strategy to improve product delivery and help transform this company’s already-successful Logistics into a top-class operation. Within this overall rubric, you will also manage the company’s production schedule, coordinate sales order reception with picking operations, negotiate with vendors, and manage overall the inbound and outbound logistics team. In addition, you will act as a point of escalation for issues in the company’s Logistics, and you will also take on ownership for continuous improvement, working to constantly optimize process and systems in the Logistics function.
This is an excellent role for someone with at least 5-7 years of managerial experience in Logistics, with an extra emphasis on the transportation side. A strong understanding of Transportation Management Systems (TMS), as well as a demonstrated track record of Continuous Improvement in Logistics, are also a must for this role. Our client is also seeking an individual with strong people management and coaching experience – but experience in a unionized environment isn’t necessary.
