At Manutan, the Group Transport Department guarantees that products are delivered under optimal conditions, improving customer experience throughout Europe…

This dedicated team of around ten employees works across two scopes: 

  • In France, it manages delivery impediments* and the voluminous transport operations of the warehouses at the Gonesse headquarters.
  • On a Group scale, it fulfils three main roles in coordination with all the European subsidiaries:
    • Improving customer delivery performance with a transport offer adapted to their needs.
    • Optimising financial efficiency, in particular through contractual reviews and regular calls for tender.
    • Reducing operational risks by streamlining transport plans.
