Distribution Supervisor (Afternoon Shift)

Lower Mainland, B.C.

Argentus is working with one of our premier West Coast clients on a Distribution Operations role! This company is a leading distributor for a variety of  commercial and industrial products, with a reputation for supply chain excellence. Today, they’re looking for a Distribution Supervisor (Afternoon Shift) for their Lower Mainland, BC Distribution Facility!

Working out of the company’s BC Distribution Centre (DC), in this role you will work to help oversee DC operations for Afternoon Shifts. In this capacity, you will coach and mentor the warehouse and transportation team towards success in fulfilling their objectives — including on-time filling and distribution of customers’ orders, efficiency, and overall customer service. You will work to identify areas of continuous improvement in the warehouse and transportation functions, working closely with leadership and the warehouse team to manage the company’s fleet, optimize turnaround and fulfillment time, and ensure an effective flow of materials through the facility. You will work to develop a culture of safety in the DC, providing implementation and monitoring of ongoing safety policies to comply with Transport Canada regulations, while also developing and maintaining strong documentation for shipping. You will provide day-to-day leadership on picking, packing, loading and other DC activities, while also producing and implementing  the company’s ongoing staff schedule. Working within the company’s Warehouse Management System (WMS), you will help set and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) to improve overall performance and lower cost, while working to build a strong team culture of collaboration and ownership. 

At least 5 years of supervisory experience in a Warehousing / Distribution Centre / Transportation environment is a must for this role, as is experience leading, coaching and mentoring a team to success in a unionized environment. As this role manages the night shift, the successful candidate needs to be comfortable with night-time working hours. Experience working within Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) is also a must for this role. If this sounds like you, and you’re looking to step into a new role, reach out to Argentus today!
