Move forward as Site Manager at DSV in Venlo

Do you get excited about a rapidly growing organization? Are you uncompromising on quality, experienced in automation within logistics, excellent at leadership, and adept at connecting all stakeholders?

You get it done

You are capable of collaborating with clients on a strategic and tactical level. You excel at driving current and future projects and improvements in operations. Furthermore, you constantly promote cooperation within the organization, believe in self-managing and entrepreneurial teams, have an open personality that empowers employees, and facilitate employee satisfaction. You’re on it.

How do you do this? For you, 3PL logistics combined with automated warehouse processes hold few secrets. This is great because our 'Venlo 4' site is state-of-the-art, featuring almost 7 km of conveyor belts. Additionally, multiple clients operate at our site with products ranging from shoes to perfumes that fall under ADR regulations.

As a Site Manager, you are ultimately responsible for the daily operations (approximately 350 FTE) of our multi-client 3PL location in Venlo. You report directly to our Senior Director and are part of the regional management team. You ensure that quality always comes first and that all established standards, procedures, and rules are met. You hold P&L responsibility and continuously manage KPIs, targets, and workforce. You achieve this by: 

  • running an efficient existing operation and achieving the agreed KPI objectives;
  • actively contributing to the development of your team. You assess capabilities and qualities to ensure the right people are in the right place;
  • being able to switch between functional needs and technical solutions to come up with (structural) solutions;
  • prioritizing, driving improvement projects, and continuously challenging our service.

Your team at DSV stands out for your drive to get the best out of your team every day. Whether it's optimizing processes within our warehouse or celebrating successes together, you challenge each other daily!
