WORK EXPERIENCE

1.BPSA – PARKTOWN OFFICE

Transport Scheduler 2009 to Dec 2018

I have demonstrated strong networking skills during execution of my work. I have served a large network of sites in KZN region, and currently serving Gauteng region and I have made a significant contribution to volume growth through my ability to engage dealers.

As a trained marketer, I have very good knowledge of the stock position at each site, the appropriate delivery trucks to use and the best time to make deliveries. In effect I minimize the probability of having a dry site, returned loads and the incidence of congestion on site.

Effective and consistent input into vehicle utilization across the network in order to keep costs under control.

I have also taken interest in our B2B offering in that this channel has good margins and brings with it significant volumes. The impact of on time deliveries to B2B customers has wholesale benefits to the final consumers, many a time being the general public. I ensure that metered trucks are readily available for deliveries to our B2B customers.

My role also involves working with software packages namely, WINDMS, Orion, OMS, Shortrec and vehicle tracking tool, C-track. Having worked in a SAP environment before, I have found it relatively easy to adapt and I am proficient in my work.

My daily responsibilities include: ensuring timely publication of agreed safe economic schedules.

Maintain system data such that correct vehicles are sent to customers at the right time commensurate with safety and business hours, through ingenuity plan efficiently to avoid product returns.

I have a high level of emotional maturity which I channel towards supporting my colleagues in the depots, either through performance management, including assessing outcomes of post trips briefs with drivers.

I have an excellent appreciation of the work ethos obtaining in the Western Cape, Gauteng and KZN regions.

2. BPSA – Langlaagte Depot, Johannesburg

Admin Fulfiller 2007-2008

My motivation to study for a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration was ignited in this role. I began to appreciate the importance of each role player from the time loading orders are received at the depot till the point at which the drivers submit the proof of delivery. This was my induction to processes and procedures and how to cope with complexity. I wanted to become a Manager, a good Manager actually.

In processing loading orders, delivery notes and driver returns, I learnt the complete process flow that actually translates into a sale. This appreciation helped me to zero in on loss control, to manage risks of product loss thereby saving the company money.

I am a fast learner and so I was able to articulate most of the operational challenges faced by the Fulfillers. I was recognized for my hard work and earned the rating ‘Exceeding Expectations’ for the year 2008.

I took a leading role in coordinating Fulfiller workshops primarily to support colleagues who were facing operational challenges. This also motivated the team to cooperate in our efforts to minimize product losses.

3. Eskom Enterprises – Germiston 2004-2006

Admin Support

In this role, I had my first exposure to working in a SAP environment. I would generate purchase requisitions, purchase orders, goods received notes and travel requisitions. I appreciated the principle of segregation of duties and the importance of administrative controls.

I was the custodian of manuals for applicable standards & procedures and would arrange meetings and departmental functions.

I would handle petty cash claims and ensure that cash advances were retired timeously.

RELATED ACHIEVEMENTS

I am adventurous and have a passion for organizing outings and trips with friends. I have a flair for encouraging others to plan ahead, budget and make reasonable contributions to our adventures.

I have also been organizing the events for the work team e.g. birthday, heritage or cultural celebrations
