DAF organizes its own inbound goods transports to collect the required production goods, for the manufacturing of a Truck, at multiple suppliers in- and outside Europe. The DAF supply base is getting more complex and global. For the new DAF Truck model, to be ready in 2021 a research must be executed to identify all “new” supplier locations and design the best supply chain from supplier to DAF factory, with all requirements necessary. The study should cover all opportunities to improve and future developments required to obtain the best, on TCO, based solution.
For this assignment we are searching for a driven and enthusiastic Master student Supply Chain Management with great communication skills. You are fluent in the English language, both verbal and written form.
DAF Trucks is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PACCAR Inc. The DAF Trucks N.V. purchasing organization is part of PACCAR Corporate Purchasing and goes under the name of PACCAR Purchasing Europe.

The PACCAR Purchasing Europe organization is subdivided into Product Projects, Production Purchasing, Non-Production Purchasing, Parts Purchasing and Supplier Quality Assurance (SQA).
DAF wants to give substance to “Strategic Supply Management” in an effective, proactive and interdisciplinary manner, in the following five areas: Quality, Logistics, Know-how, Competitive position and Competitive position Price. The supplier must have a favourable market position and financial position & the total costs within the value chain must be competitive.
The work at the Department of Purchasing takes place in an inspiring and challenging environment. Correctly managing relationships with our suppliers is essential for our continuing success as a truck manufacturer. The strategic necessity for cost reduction must in part be achieved via the purchasing process.
