Our client, a leading global supply chain management company is seeking a motivated and commercially experienced individual for its Dallas office within its Logistics & Transportation division. With approximately 300 possible points of origin in interior 3P warehouses, 10 different inland ports, 20 different end market destinations, and over 350 different counterparties, there is a critical need to process multiple complex variables within our supply chain to manage costs effectively.
This individual will join the business to develop bandwidth and capability in in-house trucking and drive cost efficiencies in this large direct cost sector of the operation. The freight market is rapidly changing due to a new regulatory environment and a strong economy.

The cargo moves in consistent lanes each year and loads/unloads from company owned warehouses as well as 3P stores. With the consistent volume the business is now operating with, the objectives will be to achieve greater efficiencies and economies of scale in transportation by implementing a direct strategy with dedicated assets to our business.
The creation of a trucking division within is a greenfield project for the division.
