  • Maintaining transport manifests
  • Offering customer support on freight, pickups & deliveries
  • Investigating and processing returns/credits as required

  • The ability to build and maintain strong relationships with a diverse range of people
  • Strong computer skills with proficiency in the MS Office suite, specifically in Excel
  • A proven record of exceeding customer expectations
  • The ability to evaluate and suggest process improvements

Previous warehousing experience within the shipping, freight or logistics industries would be advantageous.
