We are now looking for a Global Head of Sea transportation. Make your career possible!

Job Description

As Global Head of Sea transportation, you act as the owner of procurement and processes related to sea transportation. You ensure that there is a contractual and operational set-up for all lanes where the group is in need of sea transports. You ensure that our products are shipped in an optimal way, from a product care to lead time and cost efficiency perspective.

You will drive improvements in critical KPIs such as container utilization, on-time performance and carrier allocation. Keep the organization updated with relevant industry insight and the impact it has on H&M’s supply chain. You will also support the organization in multiple development projects such as technology investments, supply chain optimization and network studies. This role is based in Stockholm and you will report to the Global Head of International Freight.


The person we are looking for must have extensive experience within International Transportation, mainly related to sea freight and cargo consolidation and have proven track record of shipping process optimization and procurement on senior level in a global network. Communication skills will also be a key element when deciding who we will hire for the role as you will need to build relationships globally across basically all functions within the group as well as with external Transport Service Providers. To be successful in this role, you need to have strategic mindset and at the same time operational ability to implement new solutions/tools and setting up Standard Operating Procedures. Most importantly though, we are looking for someone who is passionate about contributing to the team!

This role touches almost the entire supply chain, so you need to proactively manage various internal stakeholders globally, balancing different, sometimes competing—or even conflicting— priorities and somehow finding your way through it all to reach a mutually beneficial outcome. When it works, it’s a symphony of global level orchestration. And when it doesn’t, you have competence to redesign and improve the process!

Apart from these skills, you must also have:

  • 10-15 years of working experience in sea shipping/supply chain management
  • Experience in procurement and negotiation
  • Experience in process design and process development connected to IT
  • Ability to multi-task and engage in various projects simultaneously 
  • Ability to manage stakeholders on a senior level
  • A flexible, positive, and inspirational mindset
  • Excellent knowledge in MS Office package, especially PowerPoint and Excel
