Network Control Administrator – Wigan

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

ArrowXL are the UK’s leading provider of two-person home delivery who strive to make the world of delivery a better place, by building a business that supports the way we live today. Most of our work is taking responsibility for storing and delivering large, heavy, bulky items – the kind of work that typically needs two people to handle. Quite often these items need installing, which we do too.

Here at ArrowXL we run our trunking fleet to collect stock from clients and deliver returns, while maintaining the correct balance of trailers across the network (ensuring everything is in the right place, at the right time).

We are now recruiting for a Network Control Administrator to join our busy team in Wigan, working closely with our warehouse and planning teams to manage the daily trailer collection schedules and control vehicle movements onsite. 

Interested in the opportunity of joining the UK’s largest multi-user, two-person, home delivery and warehouse specialist? If so, read on…

Supporting the Network Controller, your duties will include;

  • Ensure the network hits all agreed collection and inter-depot trunk schedules
  • Communicating with other ArrowXL sites and contractor partners to support maintaining control, and reacting to same day plan changes
  • Liaising with sub-contractors to ensure the most efficient and cost-effective route and service is delivered
  • Providing accurate routing information to ensure that delivery times and locations are coordinated

  • Working with the warehouse teams to ensure trailer flow on site
  • Allocating and managing paperwork for inbound and outbound loads
