What it takes to be a Transport Section Leader

Can you coordinate 40 trucks on the road at the same time? Our Transport Section Leaders can. They’re the ones who make all the pieces fit together, whether it’s coordinating delivery schedules to an ever growing store network, running the day to day operations of the transport area, or managing the rostering and training of team members. Prior logistics experience is a must to be successful in this role, but more than that, we’re looking for results driven leaders with strong organisational skills and the ability to delegate effectively.

Sometimes the deadlines are tough, but there’s nothing more satisfying than knowing you’re a huge part of making the ALDI machine run
