Move forward as Senior Team Lead Export Iceland at DSV in Dordrecht

Lead a growing team of 3-5 colleagues in the export Iceland department. Grow the colleagues operationally and personally through your coaching and positive way of leading. That is what you do!

You get it done

The people of Iceland have two products; sheep's wool and aluminium. They order the remainder all over the world. Your team ensures that all export shipments, in containers, are transported to Iceland, every week with a fixed scheduled service from Rotterdam. On a daily basis, you are that customer-oriented and experienced senior team lead export who is the point of contact in case of questions or problems. Because your knowledge and experience in sea freight export and road transport is extensive. As senior team lead export, you ensure that your team works with a smile every day. You work on it.

How you do this? By working very closely with your team as senior team lead export and providing them with advice, tips and answers to questions. You puzzle out (kind of like Tetris) all export shipments in the containers. Every working day, you are actively involved in the operational and tactical management of your team. You get this done by:

  • maintaining contact with colleagues in the warehouse, road transporters and shipping company; 
  • being responsible for timely planning and feasibility of shipments;
  • being actively involved in personnel management (performance interviews, sick leave and training);
  • facilitating team meetings and realising improvements in the department.

Your team cannot be missed in Dordrecht. So sometimes they sing a song or you hear loud laughter, and always from the same angle. But they also know when to work hard and put their shoulders to the wheel together to get the job done. One for all, and all for one!
