Logistics services now go far beyond the usual local truck transport. For example, international transport by sea or air is just as much a part of a logistics provider's portfolio as the storage of hazardous goods in special warehouses.

These do not have a direct logistics focus, but are contractually related to a logistics service. This includes, for example, the repair in the warehouse of the goods stored there.
