JOB DESCRIPTION

Full Job Description
GFC is looking for a highly experienced and capable Transport Logistics Manager to join its Geraldton team. The position supports the independent operations of approximately 140 Fishermen members by ensuring the timely provision of transport services for the movement of highly perishable live lobsters, bait, and other supplies.
The Company
The Geraldton Fishermen's Co-operative (GFC) is the largest processor of lobsters in Australia and ships lobsters to domestic and international markets.
Incorporated in 1950, GFC operates within highly commercial and competitive global soft commodity markets. As a co-operative, GFC exists to maximise value for its fishermen members, whilst ensuring sustainable development of the industry.

GFC’s supply chain staff receive these lobsters on the beaches and jetties and the catches are transported to central processing sites using a fleet of highly specialised HR and MR trucks.

Ensuring fishermen members are adequately serviced with transport and logistics functions that assure product quality and support their fishing operations through the timely provision of bait and supplies.
All aspects of managing a team of casual truck drivers, including recruitment and training.
Fleet management and planning to ensure efficient utilisation of assets.
Project management relating to the construction and further development of live lobster trucks as required.
Continuous improvement of transport and logistics functions.
