Freight Forwarder

Job Description

Ensure smooth-running Forwarding and Customs operations that contribute to the success of our international logistics operation

Can you combine hands-on freight forwarding and customs experience with a real eye for detail? Do you have the ability to surprise customers and colleagues with smart solutions for a wide variety of logistics needs? Would you like to continue developing your own skills and career whilst also helping to develop our company? If so, this could be the perfect role for you as we expand our Forwarding activities and Customs services.

Join an international player

Samskip is a truly international company that provides the latest and most sustainable logistics solutions worldwide. No two days are the same as you work with a team of expert international colleagues to provide outstanding solutions for a wide range of customers. And you’re based in Europe’s Food Town – Grimsby – which is an ideal environment in which to build a successful career in this challenging but dynamic industry.

Here, there and everywhere

Apart from socially distanced training at our Grimsby office, you will work mainly from home until it is safe to return to the office. Your core task is to ensure that our customers’ goods are transported as efficiently as possible. This could involve almost anything from almost anywhere to almost anywhere else! Samskip is a growing company with a varied and geographically diverse customer base so you never know what your next challenge will be.

This requires you to work independently as you perform all activities for Forwarding and Customs, including any new processes arising from Brexit. It is sometimes hectic but always rewarding, especially for a positive multi-tasker like you!

Detailed and concrete tasks include:

  • Maintaining daily contact with customers and suppliers;
  • Creating and checking customs documents;
  • Conducting price negotiations;
  • Control of purchase invoices, invoicing to customers and administrative processing of purchase and sales invoices in the administrative system;
  • Making suggestions for new and improved processes.

A job with benefits

Samskip offers an exciting platform to prove yourself across a dynamic international platform. We promote a positive working atmosphere characterized by strong teamwork. With this comes:

  • A competitive compensation package;
  • 23 days of annual leave;
  • Private medical and life insurance;
  • A company pension scheme.

Go for growth

This role represents a great opportunity for you to grow your skills base within Samskip as Samskip grows around you. Do you thrive on being busy and getting things done? Can you take responsibility and take the lead? Are you creative and outgoing? Have you gained a solid track record within Freight Forwarding and Customs? If so, we’d love to hear from you. As well as these personal characteristics we would also like you to have:

  • Two to three years of experience in the shipping/logistics industry;
  • Excellent spoken and written English.
