Holland's LeanLogistics adds technology, transportation jobs to keep up with company growth

Holland's LeanLogistics has plans to bring on a number of new employees to meet customer demand for its supply chain software, services, and transportation technology. The company, based at 1351 S. Waverly Rd., is hiring software developers, project managers, transportation load planners, transportation load coordinators, and transportation managers.

LeanLogistics was founded in Holland in 1999, then purchased by Australia supply chain logistics giant Brambles Limited in 2008. LeanLogistics has 150 employees at its Holland facility.

"We continue to develop technology that leads the industry, so we have need for software developers and project management individuals adept in working with web based software and working in the latest technologies," says Chris Timmer, senior VP of marketing. "We also have a great need for supply chain expertise -- people that would be working with the software on behalf of clients to help them manage their transportation."

Timmer says the company recruits from the "supply chain schools," such as Michigan State University, Central Michigan University, Ohio State, and Penn State, and works closely with Grand Valley State University and Western Michigan University to find technology development graduates.

"Michigan tends to be somewhat of a hotbed for supply chain logistics professionals, so we're able to bring talent in from the local marketplace," Timmer adds. "But the technological side is more challenging to find developers for a certain technology. In the Western Michigan market, we can be a little bit challenged finding the right talent. We're a software company that's extremely progressive -- we need open minds, creative thinkers, people who are willing to be coached as well as to coach. We work for the greater good of the organization and of each other, and we look for those attributes in the people that we bring on."
