Working at DHL
Why choose DHL?

We understand that DHL isn’t for everyone, that’s why we bring the following things to the light:

  • If you prefer long-distance driving with only a few stops, DHL might not be the right fit for you. 
  • At DHL, we prioritize a healthy work-life balance, so if you enjoy working extremely long days, this may not be the ideal place for you.
  • We offer permanent positions at DHL. There are no opportunities for freelance work.

Bram - DHL Den Bosch 'Here I could grow further and get my C-license, amazing!'

'I started out as an intern at DHL and quickly received a permanent position. After this I started delivering parcels to customers’ houses. After 6 months, it was possible for me to grow my career and I got my C-drivers license. Now I’ve been already working for three years as a truck driver. The advantage of my job is that you have a lot of contact with others, both colleagues and customers. Being a truck driver at DHL is everything but a lonely job.'
