If these are not adhered with, with the partners, you must be able to manage and hold the accountable for all SLA failed costs.
On top of this, you will manage all Logistics and Packaging budgets, trying to reduce costs where possible whilst planning for the year ahead and thinking about new initiatives for 5 years in advance.
The client is working with the top 6 large UK food retailers, with a reputation for excellent customer service; therefore you will have a reputation for delivering very high levels of client satisfaction through well organised and carefully planned operations.
