The new clients are rolling in fast! Argentus is working with another new client, this time a Consumer Packaged Goods company distributing to industrial, commercial and consumer applications. This company is known for the sustainability of their supply chain operations, as well as their strong employee support. Today, they’re looking for a Global Logistics Specialist! 

This Global Logistics Specialist will work out of the company’s facility in Vaughan, ON, taking on front-line ownership and accountability for a variety of logistics processes. In this role you will work with existing carrier and warehouse partners, while also working to source new suppliers, to develop customer service excellence and lower cost. You will manage ocean, rail and truck freight programs, negotiate with vendors for best possible rates, and work with warehouse partners on quotes and billing for materials handling, loading and shipment. You will track and manage ongoing shipments, communicate any potential issues to internal stakeholders, and work with the team to prepare and file customs documentation as required.
