Transport Planner Healthcare / Pharma

Freight Forwarding

Job Req Number:  52748
Time Type: Full Time

DSV Road
For our fast growing division DSV Road, based in Venlo, we are looking for a


Transport Planner Healthcare/Pharma.

What will you be doing?
Within a small team you will be active on a daily basis and responsible for the optimal planning of equipment and routes. The shipments are transported throughout Europe by our own extensive fleet and it is your job to ensure maximum customer satisfaction through complete and flawless planning. DSV already has a wide range of transport modalities and will expand into the Healthcare and Pharma sectors this year. A great opportunity to use your knowledge and experience in building up a completely new transport branch, in which you will play a crucial role. You will get a lot of freedom and responsibility within this role and together with your colleagues you will pioneer in putting our Healthcare and Pharma services on the map. 


The main tasks within your position consist of;

  • Drawing up and keeping up-to-date an optimal capacity planning, using the available fleet, for example, refrigerated transport or trailers equipped for high value cargo;
  • Monitoring shipments from pick-up to delivery;
  • Providing information regarding the goods to be shipped, routes and transport documents;
  • Maintaining very close contact with external partners regarding ongoing shipments;
  • Informing customers proactively and keeping them up to date on issues and requests;
  • Processing additional administration in the system, such as orders and transport documents;
  • Providing reports for transport management.

We ask:
It goes without saying that you already have some experience within the profession and can use the knowledge and experience you have gained to set up an entirely new transport service at DSV. In this role, you must be able to change gear quickly, come up with creative solutions every now and then, not be afraid of ad hoc matters and, above all, have the nerve to do so. Furthermore, we think that this role is tailor-made for you, if you: 

  • Not so much an MBO diploma in Transport or Logistics, but above all a passion for the job. You know how to convey this to your colleagues and to both internal and external customers;
  • Preferably you have about 3 years of experience in a position as a Road Transport Planner, with thorough knowledge of Pharma / Healthcare / GDP transports. But also when you have no knowledge of Pharma / Healthcare and GDP transports, but are ready for the next step in your career, we would like to invite you to respond;
  • You already have extensive knowledge of transport planning systems;
  • Knowledge/experience with MS Office (Word and Excel) and KPI reports;
  • You have a good knowledge of Dutch and English in word and writing. If you also have a command of a second foreign language (German or French), that is definitely an advantage!
  • You are motivated, ambitious, pioneering and eager to get started building up business;
  • You know how to work independently as well as in a team and you have good communication skills.


What do we offer?

Working for DSV means working for one of the top players in the market. We are growing and looking for people who want to grow with us. We offer a challenging job in an international environment, with a good salary and fringe benefits. As a global provider of logistics solutions, we offer good career opportunities to the right employees. We find it important that our employees enjoy going to work. Personal attention, open communication, collegiality and a positive company culture are key to this.
