Value added logistics

Value Added Logistics

Value Added Logistics (VAL) are a combination of logistics and industrial activities. They are implemented to customize products to meet individual European country requirements.
Ideally, such operations are carried out as much downstream as possible in the supply chain.
They should increase the producer’s market flexibility and customer service while mitigating inventory and transportation costs.

These activities will help you bring your product to every European country in a comprehensible and efficient way. They can be divided into two groups as part of postponed manufacturing:

  • General VAL for products for the pan-European market
  • VAL to customize the products per country, region and market segment.
