Hire a Logistics Assistant

 

Many talents contribute to the success of a company’s success. The day to day operations in a warehouse, with its numerous transactions, orders, and activities, need reliable people to run smoothly. Logistics assistants are hardworking individuals whose goal is to support the logistics manager in all areas in a warehouse’s daily operations. While the role of a logistics assistant can be considered a more junior role, this is a good learning opportunity for individuals who wish to jumpstart a career in the logistics industry. 

 

Logistics assistants work on a part-time or full-time basis. The typical work schedule is in the daytime but may extend to evenings depending on the nature of the company and warehouse production. In hiring logistics assistants, recruitment managers look for individuals who are organized, focused, meticulous, and can follow instructions accurately. Recruiters use a job description to inform job seekers about the responsibilities, expectations, and requirements for the open position. This is a great way for the hiring company to make a lasting impression and encourage candidates to apply.

 

Responsibilities of a Logistics Assistant

 

Logistics assistants perform many responsibilities in arranging, processing, and securing incoming and outgoing shipments. They check orders, prepare packing lists, package, wrap, and label products for delivery or pick-up according to a specific schedule. Logistics assistants compare and study the transportation costs of different companies and monitor shipments as necessary. 

 

Another facet of a logistics assistant’s responsibility is to process incoming shipments and deliveries. They are responsible for checking if the shipment contents match the shipment order and are in good condition. Logistics Assistants assign the delivery to designated areas. 

 

Additionally, logistics assistants routinely check and monitor inventory, materials, and stocks. They collect and send invoices to different company departments and run other errands for the logistics manager as needed. Lastly, logistics assistants enter data into the company database. They maintain a clean, organized, and safe work environment at all times. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Logistics Assistant

 

To qualify as a logistics assistant, a high school diploma or GED is required. While most companies provide on-the-job training, previous work experience as a logistics assistant in a warehouse is preferred. A strong understanding of shipping processes and procedures is beneficial. Similarly, candidates need basic computer skills for documenting orders, invoices, and packing lists. 

 

Because logistics assistants engage and interact with warehouse staff, warehouse managers, vendors, delivery personnel, trucking companies, and customers, it is essential for candidates to listen and communicate well. The ability to follow written and verbal instructions are part of the job. 

 

Logistics assistants must be able to work independently and collaboratively with other team members. A sense of teamwork and group effort is highly valued. Assistants can encounter problems on the job that needs solving and troubleshooting. Candidates must be organized, calm, with strong attention to detail. Lastly, candidates must have the physical strength to maneuver products, lift or carry heavy items when needed, and be on their feet for long periods.
