Time Type: Full Time

Move forward as Controlroom Specialist at DSV in Venlo
Do you keep a cool head and monitor our entire automated warehouse? Are you the specialist who gets the right data and thinks in processes?


You get it done
As a Control Room Specialist, you are responsible for starting up, monitoring, controlling and closing down the production processes in the automated warehouse and you'll be part of it!  


How you do this? You anticipate disruptions and forecasts. Extracting data from all systems, you continuously keep the day's objective in mind and ensure that, with your input, the operation continues to work according to plan. Where necessary, you escalate the processes. All this happens from the control room, an office environment full of screens and computers where all processes and data are monitored. 

As one of the specialists in this, you become part of a relatively new department that is very important for the entire operation and continues to develop and grow. Through your knowledge and experience, you will contribute to the success of the entire operation every day!


You will get this done by:
•    solving first-line problems and identifying improvement processes;
•    communicating with the operation on status process flow, changes and required steering and providing input on updates to the various stakeholders;
•    controlling and monitoring the progress of the processes.


Your team stands out within DSV because of the specialist knowledge of each person and the international character. The team is new and the atmosphere is hugely collegial. The team is managed by operations manager Krists. As a team, you will work 2 shifts and occasionally and by mutual agreement at weekends.

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.


You bring

•    demonstrable solid logistics and automated warehouse knowledge, gained as a process engineer, automation engineer or troubleshooter, for example; 
•    ability to always remain calm in a dynamic environment, allowing you to maintain an overview and always set the right priorities; 
•    good command of the English language and knowledge of various software systems.

It all counts for this vacancy of controlroom specialist in Venlo. Furthermore, it is of course important that you feel at home with us. That will certainly be possible if you like to keep going, have guts and want to grow with DSV.
