Whether shipping or receiving, you will ensure that all plans are on track accordingly, confirming all goods are accurately documented and tracked.
Additionally, the Warehouse Supervisor will be heavily involved in leading the team, training and scheduling your team members to maximize production effectiveness. At any given time you will manage between 2 and 5 people, so you will need to bring your strong organizational and people skills to this role.
