As a Global Routing Consultant you start your career at ORTEC with a one-year traineeship. During this year you will see four different aspects of product consultancy and implementation, where you get to know the different sort of projects we work on, get familiar with our vehicle routing software solutions, and support the use of our product both internally and externally. Moreover, the traineeship will help you to build a strong network within the organization.


Our vehicle routing software solutions are used by many customers, such as Walmart, Shell and PostNL, to plan the day to day deliveries of groceries, fuel, mail and much more. They also help our customers make good tactical decisions: for example, given the depots and delivery locations, what is a good default assignment of the different customers to the right depot, to correctly balance the total expected workload, both geographically and in time? In your role as consultant you have to determine how relevant parameters such as working hours, product types and loading restrictions can be modeled correctly within the ORTEC software.


You are the linking pin between the customer and the developers from ORTEC. You are involved within the full implementation cycle:

  • Analyzing the business process of the customer.
  • Translating the business requirements into a solution design.
  • Configuring the ORTEC software to reflex the needs of the users.
  • Guiding and training the planners in the use of the ORTEC software.
  • Scripting integrations between the ORTEC software and other third party solutions.
  • Providing input to our development team for improvements and new modules.


This makes the role as consultant very dynamic since you’re both working with a high-end optimization solution, and you communicate directly with the end users.


Taking ownership is key in this role: together with the key players you are responsible for the complete implementation cycle. As a team, you make sure that we deliver what we promised.


You will be working in a team of experts supporting foreign teams short- or long-term and you get the opportunity to perform your job from different offices abroad. It is very important you are able to share your knowledge with foreign colleagues. You will also be working on projects in the Netherlands regularly (especially at the start of your job).

  • Willing to travel and work internationally
