Transport Coordinator – Wigan

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.

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