Today, they’re looking for a Distribution Manager!
This is a classic Distribution Manager role, taking on leadership of the company’s Vaughan, ON Distribution Centre from the perspective of people, processes and technology. This approx. 150,000 square foot facility distributes the company’s wide variety of products to major Canadian retailers, and as Distribution Manager, you will take on accountability for leading the team to on-time delivery to those customers. You will manage the overall workforce and workflow for the company’s unionized distribution employees, balancing labour needs with business volumes. By providing motivation, coaching and mentoring to the team, you will work to consistently upskill and develop the company’s talent base to improve performance, and build the working culture of the DC. In addition to this hands-on leadership, you will take on accountability for budgeting for the DC, and also lead all safety and process compliance activities. In addition, this role has a major continuous improvement component, as you’ll work to implement a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) at the DC level, and also help develop new processes, metrics, and formal systems to increase warehouse performance.
