Commercial Manager Road Transport

GoodFuels is a fast-growing scale-up located in Amsterdam. We are the frontrunner in the field of truly sustainable fuels for shipping and heavy road transport. GoodFuels plays a crucial role in the active development and commercialization of advanced biofuels and is widely seen as global market maker. To meet our growth ambitions we are actively seeking new members of our team.

You are an experienced sales professional ready to take the step to help convert a fossil fuelled transport market to a greener, more sustainable business. Ideally you have a network and previous experience in heavy road transport or you have experience in the fuel industry (eg. retail manager).  In any case, you have a proven track record of converting B2B leads into clients and are ready to take on your next challenge!

You will be part of the GoodFuels Road & Rail team  – one of three main business units in GoodFuels- and you report to the Managing Director GoodFuels Road & Rail. What we seek:

  • You are a proven sales professional, ready to take on the next step in his/her career by moving into a fast paced but sometimes conservative market. This job will from time to time require more than just sales: it will also require you to build partnerships and deep dive into background information specific to this market.
  • You are a great communicator, knowing how to deal with senior level executives of the industry and you’re persistent in reaching your goals.
  • You can function autonomously, adapt easily in new environments and like to contribute to the goals of the team
  • You have the ambition to contribute to a better world, as GoodFuels mission is to create a fossil free world. This enthusiasm will be needed at some of our clients!
  • You have persuasive skills to sell the story behind our product, from the sustainability aspects to the technical details
  • You are acquainted with business cases and the context in which transport companies operate
  • You generate new leads by developing creative business cases for our customers
  • You meet with customers to discuss their evolving needs and ambitions to become green using advanced biofuels
  • You develop and implement new sales initiatives, strategies and programs to capture new and existing target segments
