Business Development Manager, YUL

Montreal, QC
Job ID 202199

Company Description

Our client is one of the World’s most proactive and influential Freight Forwarding organizations. A virtual “powerhouse” on the International scene, this organization is a force to be reckoned with. They offer the full gamut of freight services, allowing them to provide a “complete logistical solution” to their clientele. Their size, scope and expertise, are such that no logistical need is beyond their capacity and thus no client requirements will go unmet. This devotion to customer satisfaction and unparalleled execution has allowed them to secure some of the World’s most respected organizations, global leaders in their own right, as trusted clients.

Already an industry leader, they are looking well ahead to future decades in order to solidify and bolster their competitive advantage in the Freight Forward industry while focusing on being a responsible, sustainable & ethical provider of services.

Well known for their strict adherence to the highest standards of quality they are both a service provider of choice and an employer of choice. Over their long history they have continually extended their high standards to their recruitment efforts and hire only the best and brightest within the industry. At this time they wish to add a talented Business Development Manager, to their exciting and dynamic team.


Competitive and comprehensive compensation plan, commensurate with experience and ability, including a robust base, commission, car allowance, vacation, benefits, RRSP match, etc.

The Opportunity

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to take up the mantle of Business Development Manager with a major player in the Freight Forwarding world.


Wishing to, not only maintain, but also, further establish their dominance in the Canadian marketplace, specifically Quebec, they plan on adding a Business Development guru to their exciting team. Working out of the Montreal office of this pre-eminent organization you will be well positioned to target business throughout the province of Quebec.

With a strong history and presence in Quebec you will be able to hit the ground running at full speed. The Montreal branch of this well respected Freight Forwarder is a long-time staple in the market and the team is efficient, effective and tenured, an excellent combination that will ensure that your valued clients are well taken care of.

With complete support from the highest levels you will have everything at your disposal that you require to bring to reality the corporate focus for 2022, growth, growth and more growth!

Position Description


You will be empowered to promote the entire breadth of services offered: air, ocean, transborder, customs brokerage, warehousing, contract logistics, ground, special projects, customs consulting, international, domestic, import, export and much more. No opportunity is too large or too complex to be successfully met by this world-class organization.


In most cases the only thing holding back a truly gifted sales person is the limited operational capacity, efficiency and effectiveness of the organization they represent. Specifically in the transportation industry, especially now, it is reliable access to space and reasonable pricing! If you sell freight forwarding, you want to sell for this organization, just think of what you could accomplish with unlimited capacity, executed expertly, at your disposal…


As the successful candidate, you will be an expert in selling Freight Forwarding; a talented business development specialist who is capable of successfully selling each of the services offered, either in kind, or as a part of a complete logistical solution. You will have a proven track record landing the “big fish”, the “small fish” and all the fish in-between and are comfortable presenting not only the Transportation Manager but also the “C” Suite decision makers.

To put it succinctly, the successful candidate will be:

  • An expert in selling Freight Forwarding services
  • A natural born hunter and closer
  • Have a passion for providing solutions to clients
  • A relationship builder than forms strong, lasting bonds with clients.


CIFFA, CITT, P,Log,, CCS, CTCS, and/or other related industry certifications an asset.


Post-Secondary Education preferably in Logistics or Business an asset.
