Recruiting Supply Chain Talent

Supply chain jobs are abundant in America, but that doesn’t mean that it’s easy to fill them with qualified talent. Recruiting in logistics can be a stressful, confusing task as there are many different qualities that are required to be successful in the field. One of those qualities is the willingness to learn – that is, being ready and eager to take on new tasks and roles in order to solve the unique problems that will inevitably occur on a regular basis.

Here at Zip Xpress we place a lot of value on an individual’s willingness to learn, which is why so many of our employees have been promoted from within. Someone who starts on the warehouse floor can learn a lot about how the freight looks, how to handle it, and the best ways to package it. This knowledge can translate to becoming a great planner or dispatcher, as they will be able to visualize the freight and speak from prior experience. The world of logistics is always changing, and those who are constantly adapting have a great opportunity to advance their careers.

At Zip Xpress, we place a major focus on company representation. We recruit people who we believe could be the face of the company at any time. This means that candidates should be personable, communicative, and have a willingness to provide the highest level of customer service at all times. This can be seen from the ground level in evaluating how people answer the phone or respond to emails. Answering the call is only the first step, but the ability to listen to the customer and come up with unique and creative solutions is what sets our elite talent apart from the rest. In logistics, one should always be motivated to go above and beyond what is necessary to get the job done. The employees at Zip Xpress believe in this philosophy, and it is our goal to always see a customer satisfied.
