About the role

We are looking for a Transport Manager to take ownership of SumUp’s transport multimodal network: the flow of containers, trucks, air freights and final delivery to merchants around the world. You will make sure that SumUp’s card readers arrive on time at their different targeted destinations. 

Our new colleague will manage a strong and reliable (but still young) network, touching every single aspect of Logistics and transportation. Any type of transport means you can think of… we use it.

  • Full ownership of the door-to-door process, including shipping packaging materials and consumables.

  • Support to Sales Teams and Supply Chain for new product launches: planning, transportation, inbound… Again both ocean and air.

  • Shipping invoice reconciliation working together with our Accounting team in Bulgaria.

  • Cost analysis, reporting and cost-saving opportunities development.

  • Monitoring overall KPIs and metrics on cost and service performance.

You’ll be great for this role if you have:

  • Experience with carrier and freight forwarding management

  • Experience with SAP

  • Advanced Excel skills. 

  • Autonomy and great communication skills in English with both internal and external stakeholders 

Will be a plus: experience with other Logistics processes like warehousing and fulfilment, SQL and reporting.

  • Opportunity to work with a truly global, multicultural team (we are 3000+ people from 80+ countries, spread across 4 continents)

  • 28 days’ paid leave

  • Competitive salary package and virtual stock option programme
