The logistic process consists of managing the flow of goods, products, and materials through the organisation and its supply chain. A Logistic Planner maintains close contact with customers in three different stages of the process. These stages are: the preparatory phase (planning), the execution phase (orders), and the settlement phase (administration). You will make sure that equipment and people get where they need to be, within the budget and on time. You will work in a team with people who support you. These people can be drivers, shipping and packaging experts, staffing team leaders, and transportation experts. As a member of a team, you will play an important role in processing and creating orders. The goal of a Logistic Planner is to guarantee that the logistic services are extended at the lowest or most efficient cost. Logistic planning is a critical aspect for the supply chain sector.
There are multiple responsibilities a Logistic Planner has on an everyday basis. Obviously there are variations in different organisations. Firstly, you will gain a full understanding of the customer contracts, to make sure all activities are executed according to the contracts. Secondly, you will recommend the most efficient way of transport and evaluate these transportation arrangements for constant improvement. Moreover, you will manage customers, suppliers, and subcontractors at multiple levels. Lastly, you will monitor the efficiency of the operational process and control finished orders and stocks.
The requirements will vary per organisation. The following list displays the basic and common accomplishments and experiences you need as a Logistic Planner:
