I am a warehouse professional who fully understands the impact of an inefficient warehousing/ logistics system. Therefore, I ensure cross-functional collaboration and clear and specific delegation of tasks to ensure efficiency. Staff morale is high on my agenda, to ensure maximum productivity.

Experience

  • Stores Stock Controller, Storeman, Cycle Count Administrator & Stores Supervisor

    at Lear Corporation

    May 2001 - November 2007

    Eastern Cape

    I consider this my first 'real' position since matriculating, as this company really had a lot to offer with regards to development and growth. I spent just over 6 years at Lear East London, starting as a Cycle Count Administrator and then working my way up to Stores Stock Controller then Storeman, then Stores Supervisor. Here I learnt all aspects of warehousing, understanding that I needed to understand what was happening on the Production line in order to ensure efficiencies within the stores. This had me develop a special relationship with the Buyers and Planners, ensuring that I assisted them with Forecasting and Orders, to ensure zero line stoppages.Providing critical crossover support in other departments as needed, continually demonstrating superior time management and team collaboration abilities. I have a proven ability to optimize warehousing efficiency and success, along with my commitment to ensuring an outstanding level of customer service and satisfaction.
