The role of a transport manager
A transport manager is responsible for an organisation’s transport. They must oversee the development, performance, and maintenance of the business’ transport with the goal of maximising efficiency, service, and profitability.
People in transportation manager jobs often supervise a team of logistics professionals, such as data analysts, shipping managers, and drivers.
Transport managers are responsible for hitting targets, ensuring the smooth running of transport and their team, sticking to budgets, and ensuring compliance with relevant regulations.
On a day-to-day basis, professionals in transport management jobs will be completing tasks such as route planning, driver supervision, resource allocation, and team management. They must plan ahead for transport management and maintenance, and manage internal and external communication to achieve customer satisfaction.
Transport managers also contribute to the wider success of the business, from supporting other departments with their transport needs, to assisting in developing business strategy and reporting back to senior management on their progress.
People management is often a significant part of this role too, meaning recruitment, training, personal development, performance reviews, and other HR tasks need to be frequently completed.
Transport managers also need to gather customer feedback and action steps off the back of it in order to improve the service their department provides.

What qualifications do I need to become a transport manager?
As the role of transport manager is a managerial position, many companies will require an undergraduate degree, although this is at the discretion of a hiring manager. However, a degree in business, management, or a subject related to your chosen industry will no doubt give your CV a boost. Aspiring transport managers must obtain a professional qualification called the Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) before applying for this position. They do not need a driving licence by law, although many companies may request this.
What skills does a transport manager need to have?
A transport manager will need strong customer service skills, business management skills, and people and project management skills. They must also be an excellent leader, work well as part of a team, and be a superb verbal and written communicator. Transport managers should also have an in-depth knowledge of transport methods, costs, and benefits, while organisational and time management skills will also be important to this role.
What does a transport manager do?
A transport manager takes on the overall responsibility for an organisation’s transport. They are given targets and must oversee the development, performance, and smooth running of the organisation’s transportation department to ensure they hit these goals. Transport managers typically manage a team of logistics professionals who work together to ensure customers are happy with the transport services provided.
Can you get a transport manager job with no experience?
Many transport managers achieve this role by working their way up through the industry. They may start as a driver and progress to manager before qualifying as a fully fledged transport manager. While it is possible to achieve this role in smaller organisations without any experience, having related experience - for example in logistics, distribution, or operations - will help candidates to stand out to a hiring manager.
