Job Description

We are looking for a support to our logistics team - a customer-oriented personality interested in logistics and digitization.

Our team deals with various logistics tasks, each focusing on a different type of logistics activity, all of which are related to each other. Therefore, we expect that a new colleague would be able to make independent decisions and solve logistics tasks, but he must also be a good team player able to cooperate well with the rest of the team.
You will be communicating with Siemens business units and logistics suppliers from all over the world on a daily basis, hence knowledge of English is important to you. 
As we are focusing mainly on the German customers, you would benefit from the knowledge of German.

If you have a logistics (international transport) background, you are passionate about the latest digitization trends and you are a strong communicator able to communicate effectively also with IT guys, this position would definitely fit you.

• with Siemens Central Logistics Procurement department in Germany
• with EDI IT Department

You also must be a process oriented person:
• you will be analyzing existing transport processes between Siemens manufacturing facilities in EMEA/ Asia Pacific Region and freight forwarders
• together with IT support you will be transferring those processes into a digital form through EDI
• explaining specifics of Siemens EDI processes to logistics suppliers

You have to be accurate as well because:
• you will be continuously supervising the quality of EDI communication with Siemens
• Reporting customers to evaluate the data quality, identify bugs
• Pushing EDI connected suppliers to eliminate reporting errors

• Diverse and friendly team
