Corporate Logistics

About Us

So what’s Corporate Logistics? Well, we’re responsible for moving all Aldi products from our suppliers (from around the world) into our RDCs. It’s a really important part of the business, and we’re always looking to make it as cost-effective and efficient as possible. 

Because of Aldi’s seismic growth, Corporate Logistics has never been more significant. Growth obviously means more stock, more throughput and a quicker turnaround. 

So we’ve developed a network of consolidation centres outside our distribution centres. These work closely with suppliers to store stock for the regions to keep up with the demand – which we’ll need with the big plans we’re hatching.

What kind of roles are there?

This department has transformed over the last few years. The team is made up of a number of Directors, Managers and Assistants, all working together in a harmonious, highly effective team. Which role would suit you? 

  • Corporate Logistics Manager

Corporate Logistics Manager

As a senior member of the team, you’ll make sure that Aldi products get from the suppliers through to our distribution sites across the UK. It’s about looking at the strategy to make sure that every stage of the supply chain (right back to the source) works effectively. It’s very fast-paced and there’s plenty of variety: you could be dealing with a supplier in Spain one week and Slough the next.

The way we work as a business is different to other Logistics operations. And that’s something you’ll particularly notice as a Manager. You’ll actually own an area and be given the autonomy to drive that individual strategy. Importantly, you’ll be responsible for developing and motivating a team of Assistants. What’s more, being an Aldi manager, you’ll understand that you need to give your team plenty of freedom too. So you’ll trust your Assistants in the decisions they make and the way they run their areas.

This is a high-profile, demanding role, but if you’re ready to apply yourself and keep improving, it will be hugely rewarding too.

  • Nice working environment

    Fresh. Energised. Attractive. Those are just some of the terms you could use to describe where you’ll work. It’s the kind of place where you can do great things. A place where your ideas will be heard and you’ll have the freedom to put them into action. 

  • Excellent work-life balance

  • Great opportunities to develop

    At Aldi we’ll value you for what you can do, rather than where you’ve come from. So we’ll accept, recognise and often implement your ideas and recognise your contribution. We’ll also do our best to help you develop – either in your role or across different functions.

Supporting the team, you’ll make sure they have everything they need to keep our stores supplied and our business running smoothly. From checking invoices and keeping important documents secure, to organising filing and backing up information, you’ll make sure everything’s well organised. 

Because this is Aldi, the day-to-day responsibility for an entire area (such as a consolidation site), will fall to you. Managers won’t interfere – they’ll trust you to make the right decisions. That’s a lot to take on and it can be demanding. But for the right people, it’s a fantastic place to work.
