Inbound Supply Chain Coordinator



Amsterdam, Netherlands
Posted on Wednesday, December 14, 2022

As Picnic’s supply chain is growing, we face new logistical puzzles every day. We open new areas, develop our network of suppliers and partners, and find new ways to delight our customers. In this dynamic environment we continuously improve our processes to keep our supply chain running smoothly. Our team of Supply Chain Coordinators owns the inbound supply chain processes. Together you proactively spot issues and find pragmatic solutions to make our customers happy every day!


🥜 In a nutshell

You are the linking pin between the Commercial team and Operations. You work together with our suppliers to make sure our entire assortment is available to our customers in the most efficient way. When the Commercial team has new products to add to the assortment, you’ll work out the logistics . You run your own improvement projects, while you also have a constant eye on the daily operations. When challenges occur, you focus your energy where it matters. With data-driven analysis, you find root causes and you prevent similar issues from happening again.

You know what customers want and understand seasonal patterns and trends in demand. You translate commercial plans into concrete actions and ensure high product availability with our suppliers.. Do you play good cop? Or do you demand a quick fix? Knowing how to negotiate helps you get the best for Picnic’s customers.
