traffic / work flow


Explanation:
Leave as is.
This could be the advertising hype type name for the organizational department, that checks on and directs the work-flow. "work-flow" would also be a possibility, but "traffic" is shorter and probably to the point.

de Traffic -afdeling or de Traffic afdeling


Explanation:
Is being used more and more in Holland. Getting more common every day. Most companies I worked for had one. Attached references will explain about the traffic department in advertising and marketing.

Good luck :)
