Import Chauffeurs Planner

Freight Forwarding

Job Req Number:  [[50108]] 

DSV Road BV / Dordrecht Region FR/BE


For our department we are looking for


Import Driver Planner


Every day you are actively involved in the return planning of the more than 80 available international charter drivers. Together with your direct colleague, you will plan the drivers' return journeys from France/Belgium or Luxembourg to the Netherlands as quickly as possible.


In doing so, you take into account the rest and driving times, routes and the various loads that you obtain from your own planning/market or from your colleagues abroad. After having assigned the drivers to the planning for the following day, you maintain contact with them on that day. And you steer them where necessary in case of ad-hoc irregularities.


It is important that you can switch quickly and send clear instructions in English to drivers and/or transporters. You build up a bond with them so that as soon as they 'come empty', they drive to the address you give them.


Together with your colleague you work in two shifts, e.g., 0800-1630/ 0930-1800 hours.

As a Chauffeurs Planner you have a proactive role within the team.


The activities consist of


  • Maintain contact with international drivers (via e-mail, portal and telephone)
  • Maintaining contact with colleagues in FR and BE, this can be for cargo they offer, but also for our regular cars/rides that we execute for them.
  • Communicating return shipments to the drivers;
  • Creating consignments and putting them on trip/ filling in rates/ notifying customers of loading and/or unloading/ booking in for unloading;
  • Searching for return consignments on the market/ negotiating rates/ monitoring consignments;
  • Directing and supervising drivers throughout the day where necessary;
  • Maintaining close contact with internal departments regarding planning/ ongoing shipments;
  • Unloading in NL on time so that the drivers can be deployed again for export purposes/ putting incoming vehicles on import lists;
  • Working closely with colleagues in the BE import/ FR import department.


Since you already work for DSV, you already have knowledge of the system. Perhaps you already know the planning or the drivers we are talking about. So you'll be up and running in no time. You must be able to plan ahead, switch quickly and have the courage to change your planning when necessary. Communication and assertiveness are a plus. Furthermore, a healthy motivation.



Does this sound like the challenge you are looking for?
