Pharmaceuticals, race horses or vegetables. As a Inventory Analyst, you determine what we transport. Not only are you responsible for your own dedicated set of routes, you are also driven to maximizing the revenue and you land in an environment that is international and dynamic. Through the diversity of jobs, departments and colleagues, you always have the opportunity to surpass your own limitations; every day again.

Your main goal is to maximize the contribution on your routes, which you will do by:

  • optimizing flight related parameters (e.g. overbooking, bucket settings) during the booking window;
  • adjusting the steering for available capacity through ensuring the right traffic mix (e.g. origin, destination, and product) based on detailed analysis;
  • allotment acceptance & review and participate in seasonal allotment process;
  • supporting the Inventory Team Manager in the monthly budget and forecast process;
  • monitoring route performance (e.g. allocation utilization, operational performance) and understands related market dynamics (e.g. market share development, competitor behavior, macro-economic trends);
  • identifying causes that hamper optimal flight optimization and proposes solutions for improvement;
  • initiating and leading projects related to Inventory Management process enhancement.

Where do you land?
