To be a Transport Manager you will not only be managing the team of people in the department but ultimately the Transport running and decisions will be under your remit and this can be a stressful and frustrating role when dealing with deliveries and wagons stuck in traffic and having long journeys against how often they can drive, what rest breaks they need to take etc.

Mrs Jane Smith
Application for the role of Transport Manager
I have recently seen a role of Transport Manager which you have advertised in (which publication/online and when) and I would like to apply for this role.
I started my career working in a warehouse role and have learnt on the job for the past 5 years. I hold a forklift truck licence, I can run a distribution centre and I have been responsible for organising delivery runs and schedules for the past year.
I feel that I am now ready for a fresh challenge and having worked with wagons and deliveries I feel that I will be able to make the transition well. I have also had the experience of supervising and managing others and working well with others.
I enjoy working in this environment and work hard to achieve what I can. I am not afraid to learn new skills and am always looking for new ways to work better and smarter and run things more efficiently.
Throughout my roles, I have developed my communication skills and feel that I have got excellent communication skills and can explain and teach staff new procedures and ways of working.
Please find enclosed my CV for your consideration. If you are interested in my skills please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application.
