Transport Manager

DFDS AS

A Transport Manager is a Transport Manager, right? Wrong.  Our team in Killingholme aren’t looking for a general Transport Manager, we’re looking for a Transport Manager who can manage special cargo and ideally has experience of this.

DFDS Special Cargo is an industry leader when it comes to international flatbed and abnormal load transport. We operate one of the largest specialised fleets available in mainland Europe, the UK, and Ireland.  Some cargo just doesn’t fit the standard trailer format due to dimensions, weight, or the nature of the goods and special cargo requires special acceptance, handling, loading, and transport procedures.

As a Transport Manager in Special Cargo, you’ll be managing a small team of Transport Planners and around 30 drivers.  Your team will be planning the collections and deliveries of the cargo whilst being well versed in specialist equipment, legislation, and regulations.  It’s a really hands-on role so we’ll need you to roll up your sleeves and take on some of the planning in periods of high volume. 

Health & Safety is the highest priority for us at DFDS, as naturally, if we all work in a safe environment; we have our colleagues delivering the best service they can.  This is why we will need you to deliver on these standards.  We’ll also need you to have a strong knowledge of the working time directive and drivers’ hours and how we can link this with truck utilisation, maximising loads and developing our drivers.  Having your International CPC is essential.

Now about what we can give you.  You’ll be able to access some fantastic benefits such as:

  • Life assurance cover
  • Contributory company pension scheme
  • Free ferry travel for up to 4 guests between Dover and Calais / Newcastle and Amsterdam with no limit on trips
  • Regular Team social events for employees and families
  • Full employee assistance programme including:
  • Proactive financial, emotional, mental and physical health care support including face to face counselling, fast 24/7 access to a GP, a second medical opinion and legal support for colleagues and their family
  • Huge range of retail discounts from high street and online retailers
  • Cashback on health care including dental, optical, physiotherapy, prescriptions, specialist consultations and much more
  • Access to Thrive, our award-winning Wellbeing platform
  • Access to mental health first aid and opportunity to join support webinars with a focus on all areas of positive wellbeing
