This is a challenging and fun area to work in—it’s like solving a complex puzzle. Our goal is to minimise the cost and time of material and product transportation in the face of different locations, geographies, production rates, inventory levels, maintenance times and even weather. As the intermediary between the commercial area and other areas within the organisation, we are always managing multiple variables in our quest to meet our commitments to our customers. To do so we must collaborate closely with these other areas. Because we continually seek safer and more efficient ways to transport materials, innovation is strongly encouraged.
Be Part of the Challenge
Our team determines the best strategy for and means of delivering raw materials and products on time, and then sets the necessary itineraries and routes. Therefore, we need people with great planning and project- and time-management skills. Team members must also be fast learners and decision-makers and have good interpersonal skills in order to coordinate across CEMEX areas to implement logistics plans. In this area you can make great use of your creativity and desire for continuous improvement.
