Timon van Wingerden

"As a trainee at DSV, I learn all the theoretical details as well as how to apply it to my daily work. I started out learning by watching how my colleagues do things, but very quickly after joining DSV I was given the responsibility to do planning myself – something I really enjoy. In the beginning I did a small part of the process and now I cover the entire planning process."
