Argentus is working with one of our top clients in the Manufacturing / Distribution industry on an excellent senior leadership supply chain role. This Global company with Canadian roots is a leader in their market category, with a wide line of diversified products, and a reputation for supply chain excellence. Today they’re looking for a Director of Logistics!
Working out of the company’s facility in Southern Ontario (exact location confidential for now), this Director of Logistics will take on senior strategic leadership for Transportation & Warehousing within the organization. This involves planning, developing and executing an overall Transportation & Warehousing strategy to move finished goods within the company’s global network, with the goal of achieving top-notch KPIs, efficiency, operational excellence, and continuous improvement.
Working across a variety of retail and eCommerce channels, in this role you will work to optimize the company’s distribution network across Canadian and US and Global (Ocean freight) flows of goods. You will lead the transportation management team to develop a global dashboard to provide data, visibility, and insights into this global movement of goods. From there, you will work to identify, recommend and implement organizational and process improvements to increase overall efficiency and service delivery within Warehousing and Transportation. Working with IT and principals in the organization, you will work to develop and enhance various other systems along the Transportation and Warehousing workflow including ERP, TMS, and WMS. You will lead a team of high-performers within the function to improve KPIs, set organizational goals, and achieve continuous improvements to better align the function with the company’s global vision.
This is a senior leadership role, involving total budget ownership for the company’s transportation and warehousing function — so a considerable track record of Transportation and Warehousing leadership experience at the corporate level is a must. At least 10+ years of logistics experience is a requirement, with a strong understanding of Canadian, US, and Global transportation flows. Experience working with multichannel (eCommerce and retail) transportation is a requirement, as is network optimization & modeling experience, and considerable expertise with WMS, TMS and ERP systems.
