As the name suggests, the Yard Planner is responsible for the planning and allocation of all physical container stock in the yard/port terminal. When a ship arrives in port, the Yard Planner must organise where in the terminal the cargo from the ship needs to go and also arrange what cargo goes back onto the ship. The cargo to be arranged comprises mainly of shipping containers, but ports do handle break-bulk, or loose cargo such as timber.
A minimum of 3 years experience in a similar position is a common requirement along with a Certificate IV in Stevedoring Operations.
