Logistics Manager EU


We’re looking for an experienced Logistics Manager to create the best possible operating logistics network. Ready to help lay the foundation for our next growth phase in the European market? Then this is your chance to join VanMoof’s global team of inventors, riders, and go-getters. As our Logistics Manager, you’ll be part of the Operations team and work with us on our mission to get the next billion on bikes.

In order to make our European operations more scalable, efficient, and profitable, we’ve partnered up with a 3PL. Next to this third-party warehouse, we’ve opened new service warehouses in Utrecht and London which will handle all the spare part fulfilment for EU and the UK. Your focus will be on improving our logistics, and reevaluating all of our operational processes to make sure they’re future-ready. You’ll make sure our operations are smooth between the harbor and our warehouse to make sure bikes are in the right warehouse at the right time; oversee the store replenishment; and make sure our last mile strategy is future fit. 

What about you? Well, our ideal candidate is a self-driven and creative problem-solver who’s able to set up, lead, and improve an entire fulfillment and logistics operation. With expertise in developing processes combined with exceptional organization and management skills, you’ll make sure that our logistics run smoother and faster than a VanMoof S3 through a jam-packed city by the end of 2022.

What you’ll do:

  • You’ll lead strategic changes in our European logistics setup.

  • You’ll establish, monitor, and manage our operational goals.

  • You’ll manage our 3PL and make sure we operate at peak efficiency.

  • You’ll lead both the day-to-day operations (logistics, internal fulfillment, last mile, logistical partners) as well as future improvements.

  • You’ll initiate and coordinate optimal operational processes and procedures to maximize efficiency.

  • You’ll lead and grow your team and create a motivating atmosphere.

  • You’ll train, coach, and motivate the Logistics team to solve day-to-day operational issues and reach short- and long-term fulfillment goals.

What you’ll bring:

  • You have at least 4 years of experience in logistics.

  • You have experience in leading and managing a team and can inspire, lead, and motivate.

  • You have a can-do spirit and a positive approach to work.

  • You have experience with ERP/CRM systems (Odoo is a plus).

  • You have experience making data-driven decisions.

  • You’re eager to constantly improve, take ownership, and work hands-on alongside your team members.

  • You have a willingness to solve the puzzle, be innovative, lead by example, and motivate teams for change.

Extremely nice to have:

  • Proven experience at a large company at a similar extreme growth stage, facing similar challenges.

What you’ll get:

  • 26 paid holiday days for you to unwind

  • Your very own VanMoof bike (lend-lease)

  • Pension plan with Brand New Day

  • Laptop, screens, and software tools

  • Insider experience in a rapidly-growing international company

  • Healthy lunch provided when in the office

  • Special snacks, tasty coffee (and lots of tea) when in the office

  • Weekly bootcamp, weekly yoga, OneFit discount, and ClassPass credits

  • Discount on Dutch health insurance
