These are your tasks:

  • In addition, together with an experienced colleague, you will map our veneer and lumber inventory in our merchandise management system TIMBERplus.

  • You have successfully completed your professional training as a forwarding agent (m/f/d) or as a forwarding and logistics services merchant (m/f/d), foreign trade merchant (m/f/d) or as an industrial merchant (m/f/d) and have subsequently ideally gained experience in import/export processing.
  • You act carefully, accurately and independently and are able to handle even complex matters in a structured and reliable manner.
  • You are able to communicate diplomatically, goal-oriented and assertively with both forwarding agents and customs authorities at the same time.
  • You have good knowledge of the customs program "ATLAS" as well as MS Office applications.
  • Good German and English skills complete your profile.
