  • Skellefteå

Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Logistics Planner to join our excellent and passionate team at Northvolt in Skellefteå.

In joining us you will play an important part from the very start, building one of the first large scale European battery factories. Northvolt will play a significant role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

As a Logistics Planner, you will focus on making sure all the inbounds of our Northvolt Ett Giga-factory are well processed and will pay special attention to making sure we have all the materials ready for production. With time, your focus may also expand and/or shift to despatch of finished goods.

Together with colleagues: Internal Logistics, Logistics Procurement, Developers and Coordinators, you will partake in purchasing activities, as well as secure processes and resources necessary for operational deployment and execution.

Generally speaking, you have experience in working operationally with shipping, transport, and warehousing. You are familiar with the administrative side of the logistical process, documentation required to dispatch, clear customs, receive and store cargo.

You also appreciate the importance of adequate packaging to ensure safety and sound condition of the product in transit, as well as the warehouse. Ideally you had the opportunity to work with and have a good understanding on how to use different systems and modules (ERP/WMS/TMS) to support logistical planning and execution.

Experience in shipping and handling of DG and familiarity with the applicable laws and regulations within the transportation and warehousing will be considered a plus.

When joining Northvolt, you would be partly focused on supporting the team in the arena of execution. Together with other Northvolt departments, in need of logistical support you would plan, organize, and oversee shipping activities. Beyond the operational aspect, you would be engaged and support team members in various development projects.

As Northvolt develops, so will you and your range of responsibilities.

In your job you will:

  • Align with production and supply planners to ensure material availability for production deadlines
  • Book and monitor shipments with the use of relevant booking portals or Northvolt’s TMS
  • Plan and oversee local (port <-> factory) and site transportation
  • Work in close cooperation with internal and external stakeholders (e.g. LSPs, carriers, suppliers) to solve operational deviations, monitor performance and propose improvement plans
  • Provide support in inventory management and lead cost-reduction initiatives

About the company

Northvolt makes green batteries for a blue planet. Affordable cells and high-quality battery systems. All manufactured with a record-low carbon footprint. Purposely built to provide Europe with the opportunity to switch to renewable energy – efficiently and entirely.

To accomplish this, we do things differently. We design, manufacture, and recycle everything under one roof. We even build our own factories. All this is incredibly challenging and requires us to think in unconventional ways. We’re constantly experimenting, learning and adapting to make batteries so great – they will one day make oil history.

Northvolt is growing fast. We’re staffing our international office in Stockholm, our R&D facility, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, as well as our Gdansk facility for production of battery systems. We're also hiring for our gigafactory Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå, Sweden. We want to work with smart individuals from all disciplines. Strong individuals that truly want to make a positive impact on the future. Those of us already on board share a passion for our mission. We’re prepared to work hard in pursuit of excellence. We enjoy the ride and our main drive is to make a difference for real. As a team, we’re dedicated to thinking new, working hard and having fun.
