When planning, you take into account the needs of the locations and the competencies of the employees, which are determined on the basis of the demand forecasting of DSV's customers. In addition to long, medium and short-term planning, you also respond to daily (unexpected) changes. Unpopular choices can be part of that.

  • Analysis of the planning results and the execution of scenario planning and on this basis give advice to the operational managers;
  • Set up joint action plans based on the analysis of the KPI reports of the employment agencies;
  • Initiate improvement proposals based on national consultation with other resource planners.
