    Logistics coordinator

    Join our international team of super motivated, hands-on and inventive QWIC-ers!

    At QWIC, we design, produce and sell high end, award winning electric bicycles and pedelecs. We like to go the extra mile to fuel the growth of the company and reach our mutual goal: seducing people to get out of the car and onto a bike.

    We are looking for a logistics superstar, who will help us to tackle a wide array of operational and administrative challenges. Being a Logistics Coordinator you’ll have a job that offers day-to-day challenges in the world of warehousing and multi-modal transport.

    The role

    The logistics team is responsible for bringing our products from factories across the world to the doorstep of our customers, in a B2B or B2C setting. You and the team strive to deliver all our products on time and in full to our customers with compliance to international storage, import and export regulations. Within the team you carry responsibility for transport planning and ensuring timely and accurate administration of the logistics flows for our bikes, purchase orders and documentation. You help solve stock issues with our warehouse partners, on- site and off-site. You are the main point of contact for firefighting logistical hurdles with our bikes and batteries, and you help colleagues in all department with their logistical needs.

    We need someone who has an eye for detail and who gets energy out of being the spider in the web. You are service driven, pragmatic, structured and understand that it takes true cooperation and solid communication with everyone throughout the supply chain to make processes run smooth. To be successful you will need to roll up your sleeves, get a clear understanding of company-wide processes and sometimes just lean into the chaos and bring a structured approach to solving day-to-day challenges.

    Main tasks:

    • Be part of an ambitious team of Logistics coordinators, in which you are in the lead for logistic operations for our bikes and batteries
    • Maintain and build strong relationships with suppliers, warehouses, transport partners and colleagues;
    • Plan and arrange best fitting transportation from and to the warehouses and suppliers;
    • Identify, communicate and solve (potential) delays;
    • Handle the process of stock booking and resolve stock discrepancies;
    • Visit the logistics partners in case of issues or bring a cake when you are happy with them;
    • Record all logistics flows accurately in the ERP to ensure dates in sales and purchase orders are correct at all times;
    • Making sure shipping and customs documentation is correct for every shipment;
    • Be a part of our shared mailbox management;
    • Write and maintain manuals and process descriptions;
    • Provide suggestions and work on process improvements projects.

    Requirements:

    • Bachelor degree in Logistics or Supply Chain;
    • 3+ years of relevant experience;
    • Driver’s license valid in The Netherlands;
    • Living in the Amsterdam area with a valid work/residence permit;
    • Experience with 3PLs, logistics planning and shipping documentation;
    • Advanced Excel skills;
    • You are an inventive self-starter, analytic, accurate and you like to finish what has been started;
    • Experience with working in and ERP system is an advantage.
    • Definitely fluent in English. Dutch is an advantage.

    What do we offer?

    • A challenging position in a very fast-growing, young, internationally oriented company with great potential for further growth;
    • On- and off the job education and coaching to ensure you’ll keep growing towards your dream career;
    • A good salary and related conditions that are consistent with your training and experience;
    • Nice company vibe with humor, initiative, teamwork and a start-up mentality;
    • A healthy lunch;
    • A speedy and fun QWIC e-bike.

    A personal message to explain why QWIC is a great place to work:

    My name is Joe Sanders, I am the Team Lead Logistics Coordination. There are three reasons why I love to work at QWIC. Firstly, there is a shared passion within QWIC, where everyone wants to contribute to a cleaner future. Can we tempt car drivers to leave their cars at home and jump on their bikes? We think so.

    Secondly, we are a scale up who is growing fast! In the logistics team we have the exciting challenge of trying to increase capacity quicker than the bikes are selling. There are always improvement projects you can join, or suggest and work on one of your own ideas! Its better to ask for forgiveness at QWIC than permission. It’s impossible to stand still.

    Third, the community and friends you will make. I moved here from England, so didn’t know a lot of people in the Netherlands. I have made a lot of friends here during and outside of work as QWIC is made up of all different nationalities and personalities. Those are the type of people who are drawn to work in a company like QWIC. (Also the QWIC e-bikes are really cool)
