Your role as a Ground Operations Supervisor

As a Ground Operations Supervisor at Veho, you will be primarily responsible for managing the day to day ground operation of the market. You will have key areas of ownership in facilities management, local client and vendor relationship management, and administrative and business functions directly related to the team of operations associates and leads who operate during your supervisory period.

You will develop a deep understanding of the local operation, including the pickup schedule, sort operation, and driver launch, and be expected to maintain team budgets, schedules and payroll exceptions, and report on weekly key performance indicators.

You will support the operation in real time, making critical decisions that are outside the scope of responsibility of the teammates you support. And as you solve problems in real time, you will improve processes to ensure they only have to be solved once. You will have a robust understanding of the tools that make your local operation successful, including how they work and where they can be improved. You will work closely with the dispatch and driver teams, and will ensure full accountability of every package in your market.

As a team manager, you will be responsible for the personal and professional development of associates and leads on your team, and will help teach them the skills necessary to be successful in the operation while listening to their aspirations and helping prepare them for growth. You will set the standard for operational excellence, and ensure your teammates understand and execute on the Veho vision.
