Your challenge

Since 1962, the name BAS has been an integral part of the Dutch vehicle industry. Our playing field was expanded significantly with the arrival of BAS Trucks - Europe's largest dealer in used commercial vehicles, based in Veghel. Our years of experience, passion, progressiveness and the enormous growth led us to lay the foundation for our Trusted Trade Platform: BAS World. A completely new, online platform where buyers and sellers can buy or sell new or used vehicles safely, quickly and with the highest level of trust.

We are BAS World, Europe's largest dealer in commercial vehicles and located in Veghel, North Brabant. Every day, we are contacting suppliers from all over the world via telephone, chat, e-mail and WhatsApp regarding the purchase of a truck, commercial vehicle or construction machine. Our international and driven pre-purchasing team ensures that all these contact moments run smoothly.

As a Pre-purchasing Officer, you will identify new suppliers via chat, e-mail and telephone. You are responsible for collecting leads from potential suppliers who are currently, or may in the future, offer a truck, company car or construction machine for sale. By correctly qualifying the online leads and also by collecting the customer data in our database, you are able to efficiently provide the first contact moments with our suppliers. If a supplier has decided to offer us his vehicle, you ultimately connect the supplier to the right buyer. He or she then takes over the purchasing conversation and proceeds to the negotiation phase. So you could say that you provide the perfect commercial introduction to our purchasing team.

In short, your role is crucial for the commercial success within BAS and for achieving our objectives.

  • Proactively approach new and existing suppliers by telephone – Mail;
  • Replenish collected data in our CRM system;
  • Plan follow-up actions from the different contact moments;
  • Handling supplier offers;
  • Maintaining contacts with various suppliers in Europe;
