As Logistics Coordinator you’ll be managing customer orders, building fuel delivery ‘runs’ and publishing these for drivers to follow each day.  Numerous factors will have an impact on how you effectively schedule the runs including seasonal implications, weather, customer demand and supply. 

Another key aspect of the role is speaking with drivers, taking on board information they provide, which will impact future runs you schedule.  You’ll need to be a confident communicator, anticipate potential problems and be able to make quick decisions.

To be successful in this role you will:

  • Be highly organised and motivated by a busy role
  • Have proven ability to think ahead, pre-empt issues and handle them before they arise
  • Be tech-savvy and easily adapt to new computer systems
  • Be a team player and provide help and support to your team when required
  • Have logistics scheduling/coordinator experience in fuel, freight and/or dangerous goods. Experience in the Fuel Industry would be advantageous.
