To enhance our team we are currently looking for an efficient and proactive administrator who can help us to grow our trucks business in Italy. If that sounds like you, find out more about this involving role at the heart of our growing company.

A transportation company that’s on the right road

Samskip innovates the most advanced sustainable and multimodal transport solutions across Europe and beyond. Our office in Milan is home to people of different ages and backgrounds divided between Transport Planning, Customer Service, and Sales. It’s always busy, it’s often fun and every day is different as you work together to provide outstanding solutions for a wide range of customers.

Outstanding administration and support

You will become a key part of a Transport Planning team of five people. Your core task is to expertly manage the administration of our truck fleet, keeping a close eye on costs whilst also providing support for strategic transport planning activities. Collaboration with your colleagues is at the heart of everything and when the pressure is on – which it sometimes is – everyone looks out for each other. 

Your detailed daily responsibilities include:

  • Analysing and approving invoices;
  • Allocating costs;
  • Making sure all costs are managed correctly in order to avoid disputes with suppliers.

It’s a great opportunity to become an important part of a dynamic international company. There are targets to meet but you have the freedom to use your initiative and manage your own work within the overall framework of Samskip’s rules and procedures.

Optimise your career growth

Samskip also offers:

  • Competitive salary including 13th and 14th month;
  • 22 days of holiday per year plus ROL hours;
  • Restaurant voucher for each day worked.

Can you make it all run smoothly?

To apply for this position you should be a true detail person who can keep a very close eye on our procedures and administration. Ideally, you have at least one year of relevant experience in transport, shipping or logistics, but it is not mandatory, and it would be great if you can speak fluent English. Beyond that, you are a highly organised and positive person who can work with others each day to ensure that our operations are as smooth and cost-efficient as possible.

The formal requirements are:

  • A relevant Bachelor’s degree;
  • Ideally you have at least one year of experience in the shipping/logistics industry;
