Warehouse logistics specialist

At KIPP, warehouse logistics specialists enjoy a balance between practical and organisational work. Warehouse logistics specialists are experts in the processes that happen in and around our warehouse. For example, they assemble (= pick) goods for shipment domestically and abroad, then pack and label the goods. Then they prepare the shipping and accompanying documents so that transport goes smoothly. The same applies in reverse, when goods are delivered.

Warehouse logistics specialists use the shipping and accompanying documents to check whether all the goods have actually been delivered and whether they’re in good condition. They then unpack them and stow them into our fully automated high-bay warehouse. Warehouse logistics specialists have to master modern computer systems and logistics software and be good with numbers. Work is coordinated closely with suppliers, couriers, customers and colleagues, and of course involves computers. Summary: warehouse and warehouse logistics specialists are experts and all-rounders in everything to do with storage.
