DSV – Global Transport and Logistics

In 1976, in the small town of Skuldelev in Denmark, ten owner-operated hauliers joined forces and founded DSV – De Sammensluttede Vognmænd (The United Hauliers). Since then, DSV has evolved to become a world-leading supplier of transport and logistics.

Today, DSV provides and manages supply chain solutions for thousands of companies every day – from the small family run business to the large global corporation.

60,000 employees in more than 90 countries work passionately to deliver great customer experiences and high-quality services – and help ensure a steady supply of goods to production lines, outlets, stores and consumers all over the world.

Our three divisions provide one-stop shopping

DSV is organised into three divisions offering the complete range of services to support our customers’ entire supply chain:

Air & Sea – transportation by air and sea

Road – transportation by road

Solutions – warehousing and logistics services

As a freight forwarder, DSV does not own or operate transport equipment; actual transportation of goods is carried out via our global network of partners and subcontractors (carriers and hauliers).

More than 1,000 offices, terminals and warehouses across the world enable us to be close to our local markets while taking advantage of a global perspective and network to secure the best possible service at highly competitive rates.

Whatever you need, whenever and where ever you need it, we move it.

From local haulier to global freight forwarder

Initially, DSV offered haulier services only and focused activities within the construction industry. From the mid-1980s onwards, however, the business was quickly expanded to include other transport and logistics activities domestically as well as internationally. From 2000 onwards, with the acquisitions of the DFDS Dan Transport Group, Frans Maas, ABX, UTi Worldwide and Panalpina, DSV emerged as a global freight forwarder.

From the beginning, the story of DSV has been a story of entrepreneurs with great business acumen and the courage to embark on a journey of continued growth. The DSV values remain deeply embedded throughout our global organisation.

Dsv

slow paced with outdated processes. lack of structure and no room for growth. There are no processes but management has high expectations of the work. Environment is very repetitive. You will eventually feel under challenged if yo work her too long

No growth, biased management.

No formal growth. Duties are added on but there is no recognition and/or growth. Queries are never resolved on time. Management is a bit biased. The environment can be quite high pressured from time to time. Zero regards for the lower income employees.

Stressful and poor management

Work is Stressful, bias, no work life balance, poor management, culture is stressful with no flexibility. Benefits are poor and favourable if you high up the hierarchy.

How can i I make changes in the company

Shared on 9 March 2020

I had an in person interview with manager and director. It was a very casual interview, not overly formal or corporate but more of an open ended conversation that lead to job related questions.

Shared on 5 February 2019

General questions about previous work experience and they tell you what is expected of you,they ask about computer skills.
