Transport Planner

(Fulltime 38h)
As a Transport Planner at Action, you’re creating optimal planning of trips from our distribution centers to the stores on a daily basis. In doing so, you ensure the optimal combination of rides in order to be able to supply our rapidly growing number of stores with their products on time.

This is your daily Action

As a Transport Planner you are part of the Transport team, where you and your colleagues are responsible for the central transport planning of Action. You are involved in planning the transport of goods to, and from, the stores and guiding the drivers executing this. You work with drivers, dispatchers and planners to ensure that the load can depart at the right time. You efficiently work with the available trucks and drivers and, if necessary, you engage external transporters to cover peak moments. In addition, you supervise the proper execution of the planning by checking the progress of the planning and compliance with procedures, guidelines and rules. You keep track of whether the execution is in line with the planning made by you, and switch immediately when this is not the case. To monitor this, you work in different systems such as SAP and Ortec.

You are the first point of contact regarding planning problems, and you support drivers and the loading crew in loading trucks. You do this by combining loads, you monitor the correct execution by the drivers, and you monitor the progress of the planning. If something does not go entirely as planned, you contact the managers or branches and ensure that there is a good solution and settlement of the problems.

In addition, a piece of administration is also part of your duties, such as entering and processing the day-starts and tachograph data.

The Transport Planner is part of the Transport department and reports directly to the Team Leader. The main focus is contributing to a efficiently operating transport organization.
