Location:
Surrey, BC

3rd Party Logistics

Argentus is working with one of our top West Coast clients in the Logistics space on another new role! This company is a growing 3PL provider located in Surrey, B.C., with a growing fleet of assets and a reputation for exceptional customer service and innovation. To start off 2022, they’re looking for an Operations Management Lead! 

Working a mix of home and in-office in the company’s Surrey, B.C. location as the ongoing COVID-19 situation allows, this Operations Management Lead is a hands on leadership role, where the incumbent will take on leadership of a focused team, while also working to execute on a variety of operations/logistics tasks. This includes order entry, dispatching and sourcing of carriers, updating orders from customers, and acting as a liaison between the warehousing, operations and customs teams. You will manage documentation as part of the order process, including transport bills, chain of custody, and bills of lading, and provide confirmation of all successful shipments to the internal operations team. In addition, you will provide root cause analysis on any shipment discrepancies as they arise, and ensure a high level of data quality & integrity within the company’s Transportation Management System (TMS). In short, the successful candidate for this role will work hands-on to ensure a high level of satisfaction for the company’s customers, while also coaching and mentoring the existing internal team to continue to drive improvement in the function. 

This is a great role for an Operations professional with at least 4+ years of experience, preferably in Freight Forwarding Third Party Logistics (3PL), and Dispatching. Excellent communications skills and attention to detail are a must, as are strong skills with MS Office. Experience working on cross-border logistics is also a strong asset for the role, as is experience working on over dimensional freight. People Management experience is an asset for this role, but it would also be a great fit for someone with some great Logistics experience under their belt, looking to move into their first management role.
