  • coordinating between departments, internal and external stakeholders;
  • supporting and guiding the implementation of large accounts, including managing fully developed large and medium-sized accounts;
  • initiating onboarding processes, and guiding new employees;
  • conducting regular checks from various systems, such as our transport management system, Power BI, or quote tools, to promote the effective achievement of our objectives within your location, region, or branch.

Your team stands out within DSV due to the significant growth you have experienced in recent years. A relatively young label within DSV, characterized by ambition, drive, and a friendly atmosphere. Because besides working hard, we find enjoyment incredibly important.

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.
