A growing and international company

Samskip is an international company that provides the latest and most sustainable logistics solutions across Europe. Our office in Bydgoszcz is in constant communication with a wide range of clients as well as our headquarters in Rotterdam and other Samskip offices from the UK to Norway. It’s busy, it’s fun and every day is different as you work together to ensure that products get from A to B without a problem.

Delivering on our promises

Transport Planning is a daily puzzle involving numerous moving parts and any number of starting points and destinations. Your job is to solve the puzzle so that our customers enjoy efficient and cost-effective transportation. It’s a multi-tasking and multi-facing role in which you interact with a wide range of contacts, both internal and external. Above all, it calls on you to live up to our slogan 'Together We Make Things Happen.'

Within this dynamic and future-focused environment, your main tasks include:

  • Planning optimal routes via our sophisticated transport management systems. 
  • Monitoring daily transports, ensuring On Time Performance and intervening when necessary.
  • Ensuring that our assets (trucks, rail, barges) are optimally utilized.
  • Cooperating closely with international hauliers.
  • Ensuring that correct documentation and cost allocation is in place for each job.
  • Controlling transport costs by making appropriate and cost-efficient decisions.
