Warehouse logistics
specialist (m/w/d)

Get things done with an overview and sense of order.

Our more than 2,100 products need to be stored safely and must be on their way to our customers quickly when needed. At WSM, this is possible with modern high-bay warehouses – the workplace of our specialists for warehouse logistics. With forms, scales, packaging materials, means of transport and their own physical effort, they ensure that goods receipt and dispatch always function smoothly. No warehouse would function without order and a complete overview. Thus, there are documents for each process, which must be carefully read or filled in. Do the items match the information on the delivery or shipping document in terms of type, quantity or weight? Our specialised warehouse staff don´t miss even the slightest anomalies. In case of discrepancies, they immediately pick up the phone and solve the problem.

A high-rack forklift is often used in order to reach out-of-reach storage locations; floor trolleys and forklifts for movement on the ground. The sequence includes: lifting, counting, weighing, wrapping, packing and labelling. WSM often delivers larger items such as bus shelters or room systems itself; our warehouse logistics specialists help load the trucks and also operate the truck cranes in the process. Warehouse specialists have a strong sense of order or develop it during their training. Careful and autonomous work and the willingness to tackle the task at hand are part of the job profile. The acquisition of forklift and crane licenses is just as much a part of the training as thorough instruction in all safety issues.

Those who opt for a three-year apprenticeship as a specialist in warehouse logistics are also trained in typical areas of freight forwarding, such as planning delivery tours. This in-depth training can also take place after passing the final examination and takes a further year of training.
