English translation:Betriebsleiter vom Dienst - operations manager on duty
Explanation:
Ok, I'm posting this as a guess!
I did some creative googling (Betriebsleiter+ Spedition) which brought up some of the tasks of a Betriebsleiter in a Speditionsunternehmen:

Führung von Transportabteilung und Disposition
• Fahrerüberwachung, Einteilung und Überwachung
• Koordination und Überwachung von Lager und Logistikwesen
Direkte Unterstützung der operativen Mitarbeiter
• Konfliktlösung im operativen Umfeld
• Mithilfe und Unterstützung der Geschäftsleitung in strategischen Zielen und Projekten

So it is actually conceivable that the BL communicates (via phone) with his drivers and that his response is occasionally delayed because of all the other stuff he has to do!!
