Transport Planner

For lots of reasons including promotion and growth, we’re on the lookout for Transport Planners in Killingholme again….!

In Killingholme, our Logistics Services Team are fantastic at running our depot and liaising with our colleagues across the UK and Europe.  Of course, we’re always delivering a great service to our customers with cost effective solutions and maximising the usage of all our units.  We’re recruiting new drivers on a daily basis so to keep up with this rise in demand, we’re looking for a Transport Planner to join our team.

If you work in transport, you’ll know how hard it is to find a Monday to Friday day shift, but we’re looking for a planner to join us doing just that, working from 7am to 4pm and 9am to 6pm rotating weekly.  At Killingholme, we’re a great team so we’ll need you to be on call just in case we need your support. 

As with any Transport Planner role, you’ll need to maintain great relationships the team already have with drivers and stakeholders and plan our routes efficiently to maximise revenue.  We’re a forward-thinking business so we welcome colleagues recommendations to continuously improve our service.  We’ll need you to have a good geographical knowledge and have worked planning routes previously, although we will give you all the training you need on our systems to help you fly in the role.

Now about what we can give you.  We’ll give you a competitive salary and loads of great benefits to reward you for your hard work like:

  • Life assurance cover
  • Contributory company pension scheme
  • Free ferry travel for up to 4 guests between Dover and Calais / Newcastle and Amsterdam with no limit on trips
  • Regular Team social events for employees and families
