  • My Match

Are you a strong leader? Can you keep calm under the most chaotic of circumstances? As Warehouse Manager you'll direct the transport and storage of raw materials and finished products. You’ll be familiar with every nook and cranny of your warehouse, and you’ll train all your employees on safe handling practices. If there’s any problem, you’ll take care of it, or you’ll report it to the people who can.

In this role, you'll manage all distribution of materials that support the business including rail, barges, and bulk chemical storage. You may develop and maintain marine, rail and truck lanes/routes. You may even work closely with Procurement to negotiate the respective freight rates.

The Warehouse Manager role comes with the responsibility of administrative paperwork, so you’ll have your own office. You’ll handle all reports, warehouse budgets, and employee schedules. You’ll work with the production manager, materials manager, and logistics planners to make sure that the warehouse is efficient.

Warehouse Managers are required to have previous experience and are usually promoted from within the company.
