Everything you need to know about temporary employment in logistics
Today, globalization, new consumer demands for speed and the current health crisis give the logistics function an indispensable status to master in order to be efficient in sending, receiving and storing goods. All the more so as the needs of French companies can vary according to the major events of the year. Companies are therefore recruiting on a temporary basis in order to manage their logistics more flexibly and efficiently when they are subject to peaks in activity or strong seasonality.
What is the logistics?
The internationalization of trade, the opening of borders and the relocation of production have allowed logistics to experience a remarkable boom and thus become one of the key sectors of international trade. Logistics includes the management of physical flows of raw materials, goods, waste or information that transit within the company. It allows to manage the storage, the warehousing and the transport of these flows in the most rational and efficient way possible in order to avoid delays or stock-outs which are a cause of consequent financial loss for the companies.
In order to cope with these transformations, new, more and more specialized and qualified professions have been developed over the years. In particular, we can mention jobs such as supply chain manager or logistics engineer. The logistics sector is booming and therefore offers many opportunities regardless of the candidate's level of study.
Regardless of the sector in which the company is located, it will need to plan and organize the logistics flows upstream and downstream of the production of goods.
Upstream, the company will have to organize the supply, the inventory management, the warehousing and the optimization of the flows from the supplier to a central stock Downstream, the company will also have to prepare orders, organize their shipment, ensure after-sales service and also manage returns and optimize these flows.
The final goal of logistics is to optimize costs and delivery times. It must therefore allow the improvement of the productivity of the operators of all the services that make up the logistics chain:
The transport of raw materials upstream of production for which the flow from the supplier to the warehouse must be organized, taking into account any customs operations.
Receiving goods at the quay, sorting them and sending them to the racks.
The storage of goods in a specific location within the warehouse, using intelligent management tools.
Preparation of the order in the warehouse according to a specific process for each brand and type of product.
Shipment and transportation of the orders through the carrier to the final customer, whether it is a store or a physical customer.
After-sales service related to transport, which provides assistance once the order has been taken over by the carrier in the event of an anomaly or delay in delivery.
What jobs in the logistics are the most common in temporary employment?
In France, according to regionsjob.com, logistics jobs represent 1.9 million jobs in trade, transport and industry. Thus, the job offers in this sector are very numerous and it is not difficult to find a job that corresponds to your expectations.
The most common jobs in this sector are
The warehousing agent receives the goods and products arriving in the warehouse. Once the labels have been checked, the goods are stored and managed in the most rigorous way possible so that the order pickers can build their pallets and send them to the shipping area. The Warehouse Agent may also be required to do the reverse circuit: take the goods from the warehouse to the trucks.
The forklift operator ensures the descent of all the goods stored in height to bring them down to the order pickers so that they can constitute their orders. He can carry out his mission thanks to the skills he has acquired by passing a CACES. This certification allows him to drive certain types of forklifts in complete safety (depending on the category of the license he holds).
The material handler is required to receive products (load or unload them), put them away and pack them. They may also take inventory and be responsible for packaging products.
The truck driver ensures the delivery of goods from the warehouse to the customer. In addition to transportation, he/she may also be required to manage customer relations and the unloading of goods. Obtaining a C license (heavy goods vehicle) is essential for this job and additional training can also be taken.
The dock supervisor performs the same job as the warehouse manager, but works in the courier or express transport sector, in a large station or airport.
The stock manager must manage the surface, rotation, orders and storage of the various stocks for a company. He/she is in permanent contact with the production department, the sales department and sometimes the customers directly.
The Supply Chain Manager manages the stocks of the whole logistic chain from the order of the goods on the platform to the delivery of the products to the customer through the production, packaging and storage process.
Why choose the interim ?
It is possible to become a forklift operator, warehouseman, dock supervisor or stock manager without having to go through a temporary employment scheme. However, the temporary employment figures for these professions show that recruiters in this field are very keen to recruit temporary workers. These positions vary according to the major highlights and holidays of the year, so temping allows them to call on the optimal number of skilled workers according to their needs at a given moment. In addition, interim assignments in the logistics field offer many advantages (including flexibility and legal framework) and are a good way to acquire skills.
