Job Description:


Responsible for the purchasing of aftermarket parts from assigned suppliers for one of Aurora's regional Parts Distribution Centers. Buyer will ensure proper material replenishment occurs in a timely fashion. Use replenishment system to issue aftermarket purchase orders for heavy duty trailer parts according to the demand plan. Ensure target on-shelf availability, turns, and fill rates are achieved for parts purchased from assigned suppliers.


Materials Management

  • Issue and review PO's to ensure parts are ordered with adequate lead time and stock-outs do not occur. Regularly review back-orders and past-due products to ensure expediting occurs. Ensure assigned suppliers deliver products in correct quantities on time and confirmed at the cost negotiated.
  • Ensure PO's are issued in a timely fashion and minimize excess and obsolete (E&O) items. Act proactively and creatively to reduce E&O. Return overages back to suppliers. Achieve annual target for inventory turns for assigned suppliers.
  • Analyze suggested orders and issue daily purchase orders promptly to suppliers. Recommend order launcher adjustments to optimize order cost and efficiency and avoid stock-outs.
  • Work with suppliers so they use the Aurora Supplier Information System (ASIS) to confirm all PO's on-line. Cost, quantity, and due date for each PO line item will be confirmed on-line through ASIS. Ensure supplier users of ASIS are maintained (i.e. set up new users, terminate users, help current users).
  • Monitor parts back-ordered with suppliers and proactively eliminate all backorders. Pay particular attention to kits and items associated with key Aurora initiatives.
  • Review all past-due PO's and aggressively work with suppliers to obtain past-due parts. Ensure PO due dates in DST are updated so no open PO is past due.
  • Ensure assigned suppliers deliver products in correct quantities on time and at a fill rate as defined by Aurora's annual goals for Purchasing.

    Interface with Accounting

  • Ensure all PO/invoice variances (receiving and quantity related) are resolved and communicated to Accounting. Ensure Aurora's Purchasing goal for products received and not vouchered (RNV) is achieved.

    Interface with Operations

  • Work with the Operations staff to ensure all receiving discrepancies are resolved in a time frame defined by Aurora Purchasing managers. Unless otherwise stated, the Buyer will research the receiving discrepancy and communicate to Operations within 24 hours of being notified of the discrepancy.

    Sales Support

  • Participate in regular back-order review meetings with national fleet accounts and ensure proactively that back-orders are not significant.
  • Expedite product from suppliers to Aurora as required by Aurora regional sales managers and Aurora customer service representatives.
  • Promptly respond to CRM cases logged by Sales & Customer Service.

    Location / Travel

    Position requires on-site support for assigned regional PDC at a minimum of 2-3 days per month. Travel will be required if candidate does not live locally.
