If you work in the Transport sector and looking for a new role as a Transport Manager then you will previously have gained experience in this area and maybe you are coming from a Transport Coordinator or Supervisor role into a Manager role.
Potential employers will be looking to see if you can manage a situation as well as a team of people and be responsible for the goings on in a Transport department. You will be required to have good working knowledge of transport, deliveries, routes, carriers or in house carriers etc and you must be able to organise this efficiently so that operations are not disrupted.
You must be able to think on your feet and react quickly to situations as not all situations can be planned in the transport sector and you must be able to react well to this.
