Highly Competitive Salary +20 days paid vacation

Suttons Group are an innovative global logistics business, and we have an exciting opportunity for an Asset Planner to join our team based in Houston, USA.

As an Asset Planner you will be a key element of our operation, integral to both the Operations, and Sales/Commercial parts of the business. You will also be heavily linked to procurement and our maintenance team, and will work with the global planning teams to balance our global network of tanks.

Working directly from sales enquiries, you will put the right package together for our clients. Anticipating customer orders and strategically planning up to two weeks in advance, you will move resources around North America, making sure they are in the right place at the right time. You will also be responsible for asset performance, ensuring all equipment is cleaned, serviced and maintained.

Benefits:
The successful candidate will receive a generous package including:-
• Highly competitive salary
• 20 days paid annual leave
• Remote working on a permanent basis

In addition to this industry leading salary, you will also benefit from Sutton’s genuine belief in the work life balance of our employees. Understanding that it is crucial that people have down time, we offer our staff an incredible 20 days paid vacation each year.

We are also committed to remote working, not just under current circumstances, but for the long term. We have no immediate plans to open a physical office in Houston, but if we do our model will be a flexible shared office facility with collaborative space, meeting rooms, and hot desks. There will be no requirement to be in the office every day, or even once a week. Time in the office will be to suit you and the needs of your role. Say goodbye to the daily commute!

Our Company:

We have a fleet of 8,000 tank containers, 500 trucks, and 700 trailers. We carry out 170,000+ shipments per year - that equates to a delivery every 3 minutes!

Being a family owned and run business means that you will have real input and decision making ability, and not just be a small cog in big machine. We have achieved impressive growth, even in a challenging market and our diversified portfolio provides protection and security as it means we are not overly exposed to fluctuations in any one market.

Responsibilities:
The Asset Planning role is a broad, practical, hands on, process driven role that requires a creative, solution driven individual. The role is responsible for the planning and coordination of a large fleet of tank container assets within North America and Canada, matching assets to orders in the most cost effective way.

The role is part of the Regional Planning Team, reporting in to the Regional Asset Manager, working closely with the Operations, Commercial and Technical Teams along with a range of pre-qualified suppliers to ensure assets are made available, in the right location, at the right time and prepared to a standard to fulfil all customer orders.

You will be responsible for the effective and efficient management of the Assets operating in the Americas region to drive maximum productivity, measured through KPI’s such as Utilization, Average Cycle Time from Depot in date to available date, along with any Empty Repositioning that is required.

You are expected to personally develop suitable working relationships with all key suppliers and their key personnel to cement strong working relationship at all levels in order to expedite services, create value for both companies and adopt solution driven relationships.
