Move forward as Customs Manager at DSV in Venlo
Are advice, implementation, customs processes, commerce and management right up your street? You lift your team to a higher level and play an indispensable role in the growth of DSV. Move forward as a customs manager at DSV.

You make it happen
As customs manager, you manage 10 direct colleagues with support from a Team Lead. You are the point of contact for all customs matters within the East and Southeast region of the Netherlands.

Within your team, you assume your role as manager. You plan and coordinate the activities in your department, draft process descriptions and work instructions. Naturally, you keep these up to date. 

With the technical knowledge you bring when it comes to customs matters, you are the reference within our organisation. But much more importantly, you are a motivator for your team. You get all this done by: 

  • Preparing, processing and applying all common customs declarations in accordance with applicable laws and regulations;
  • Identifying deviations and bottlenecks. You immediately switch gears and look for an explanation or sustainable solution;
  • Delegating tasks, coaching and guiding your team and holding work meetings;
  • Empowering your team members. You ensure that they are trained and remain knowledgeable in customs matters.
  • You support the Senior Manager with various national activities and communication with Customs.
