Business Analyst | Genk


H.Essers is an international and reliable family business that has been providing jobs and job security in the logistics sector since 1928. Our 7500 ambitious colleagues dare to be entrepreneurial, are ready to embrace opportunities and make a difference every day with a sense of simplicity. This allows us as a company to consistently invest in growth with a positive perspective on the future. There are so many reasons to choose H.Essers, which ones are yours?

We are looking for a Business Analyst Warehouse Management Systeem (WMS) or Transport Management System (TMS) for our IT department in Genk.


H.Essers is a fast-growing company with several branches at home and abroad. This means that the IT landscape must constantly evolve, and the systems must help support the new business. For example, you will be working on the construction and roll-out of the new cloud-based WMS according to the latest methodologies to support our warehouse operations even better. The TMS team on the other hand has been supporting our transport organisation in carrying out their operational processes and tasks since 1985. Here, for example, you will help build our state-of-the-art cloud-based customer portal or the new synchromodal planning tools with which we make the best possible use of the constantly expanding H.Essers transport network. Process-oriented thinking, stakeholder management and change management are the keys to success here.
