  • Product refinement
  • Quality control

Process-oriented value added services:

  • Order picking
  • Packaging
  • Labeling

Logistics service providers and manufacturers generally work closely together to ensure long-term and tailored cooperation. The value-added services are set out in a contract, the so-called contract.
