Job Description
Halcyon have been exclusively engaged to search for a Director of Marine Transportation for a major industrial organisation within the U.A.E.  The successful candidate will lead the global shipping and logistics portfolio with an annual spend of half a billion dollars.
 
There are three key aspects to this role:
  • Freight: Evaluating the performance of current and prospective freight vendors, participate in negotiations, and develop a freight and bunkering hedging strategy.

  • Scheduling: Managing the team which is responsible for scheduling of freight for all major raw materials.
  • Projects: Due to the extensive and varied responsibilities of the role, you will be required to engage in projects such as Transhipment projects, assisting in identifying new shipping investment opportunities, cost improvement initiatives. 
This is a unique opportunity for a seasoned dry bulk professional to join a world class organisation, who are offering a greater remit of involvement in the wider supply chain process. As such it will suit an individual who is keen to use their chartering knowledge to lead a team and develop the wider supply chain strategy. We expect that this opportunity would be of interest to someone currently in a managerial capacity within either a natural resources company or a bulk transportation company.
