HelloFresh needs you
For our young and passionate team in Nieuwegein, we are looking for a Head of Logistics. You will be part of the Benelux StrategyTeam. You will be end-responsible for the weekly delivery of our HelloFresh boxes to our customers with our own fleet. In this role, you will further shape the last mile delivery and linehaul processes of HelloFresh Benelux and have a direct impact on our service levels.
You will be responsible for a P&L managing multiple teams, focusing on our route planning, our fleet and our ground operations including multiple hubs. In total, you will be responsible for a team of hundreds of people, employed by HelloFresh or via our partners. You will be based in the logistics office in Nieuwegein, but will occasionally travel to visit our headquarters in Amsterdam, our DC in Bleiswijk and our logistics HUBs throughout the Benelux.
We are seeking an ambitious, forward-thinking and KPI-driven Head of Logistics to join our rapidly expanding operations team. Reporting to the COO, you will be directly responsible for all logistics activities for HelloFresh Benelux.

Are you the perfect Head of Logistics
You have a minimum 5 years of working experience in an operational role, ideally with experience in last-mile delivery operations. In the largest part of your career, you have been in a managerial role and have a track record of identifying operational improvements and influencing others to deliver change.

As a strong connector, you are able to lead different teams and know how to motivate them to reach their goals. You have excellent interpersonal and communication skills with both technical and non-technical individuals. Continuous improvement, a can-do mentality, and target setting & budgeting are core business for you. You are fluent in English and Dutch; French is a plus.
