Move forward as a Business Development Manager at DSV

Will you soon be working as a Business Development Manager? In which you use a 'consultative selling approach' to deal with long sales processes within DSV's contract logistics? With your extensive experience, network and proactive attitude, you will start a relationship with a customer and develop it into a long-term relationship. 

You get it done

Bringing in new business for DSV's various warehouse locations in the Netherlands and building on it to the maximum; you will work on it.

How do you do this? You are a full discussion partner for potential customers in the Netherlands in the field of contract logistics. You proactively sit at the table with potential new customers, which you 'hunt' and approach yourself. You are the person who approaches the supply chain contacts of international brands. Using your own network, you offer prospects the (new) possibilities of DSV locations in the Netherlands. 

As a business development manager, you are responsible from A to Z; from making the first contact to closing the deal. You are also reactive with, for example, tender invitations. You ensure that these are converted with the right solution and budgets, but also how we as DSV can offer the best it infrastructure, mechanisation and sustainability to the future customer. You get this done by:

  • initiating and following up structural strategic discussions;
  • structuring, calculating and securing additional or different activities from 'your' customers up to and including the 1st review meeting; 
  • negotiating contract terms, recording the agreements and subsequent operational implementation.

From a location of your own choosing in the Netherlands, you will work closely with the rest of your team (business development, engineers, operations and sales support). Your goal is to go for long-term relationships and long-term contracts in order to grow DSV.

As a Business Development Manager in contract logistics, you know the difference between an order line and a pick line and how to turn your prospect into a DSV customer,

said Michiel Marks, Director Business Development.

In the Netherlands, we operate from over 25 branches, with more than 3,000 colleagues. Together we rise to the challenge of a rapidly changing environment. We make quick decisions at every level and combine ambition and teamwork. This is how we move forward and make a difference together.
