About the Job

As OTTO Motors grows exponentially, so does the need to pack and ship robots. With more robots shipping than ever before, we need a rock star to come in and keep up with our growth. This position offers the best mix of responsibility, challenge, and enjoyment. We need someone to come in, take charge, and help keep our supply chain running smoothly and with continued awesomeness!

As our Packing-Crating Shipper, you will work closely with our fantastic operations team. You have an important job: ensuring all things large and small leave our doors and arrive safely at their ultimate destination. You are the protector of the hours that went into getting that shipment customer ready. Damaged or incomplete shipments are your arch enemy. You’ll work to quote the best rates for our LTL shipments and coordinate local courier deliveries. No shipment is complete until the paperwork (in our case, ERP data entry) is filed.

Your primary responsibilities will be:

  • Packing and arranging pickup and delivery of all small package shipments
  • Packing and crating large orders to both international and domestic customers
  • Maintaining and establishing positive relationships with our logistics providers

  • Documenting and improving various supply chain processes
  • Working with other departments to improve inter-departmental cooperation and effectiveness
  • Researching international customs and conformance regulations
  • You may be asked to supervise a co-op student in packing and logistics
  • Arrange for packaging tests ensuring our products are protected against the gauntlet of freight.
