Dear Mr Wilson
Re: Freight Forwarding Import Supervisor position, Ref: 743JR
Please accept this letter and attached resume as an application for the position of Freight Forwarding Import Supervisor at Horizon Freights Pty Ltd. In all my dealings with Horizon I have found it to be an efficient and professional transporting company and would love to join the team.
Currently I work as a Cartage Coordinator with Forward Freight P/L, where I am responsible for accurately maintaining the company's database, handling OPL on behalf of interstate offices and ensuring client rate schedules are current and maintained. I also liaise with transport companies throughout Australia and Asia on a daily basis, and work closely with Australian Customs and Quarantine Authorities.
During my six years in the transport and logistics industry, I have gained extensive knowledge of export and import documentation for sea and air freight and have completed training in Risk Management and Database Operating Systems. I also have experience in managing small- to medium-sized teams and delegating tasks.
I believe I will be successful in this position as I have the skills and commitment to make a valuable contribution to TPL Logistics. I have outstanding communication skills, a good working attitude and excellent customer service and computer skills.
I look forward to meeting with you soon to discuss this opportunity.
