The outsourcing of logistics is for many companies a hard decision to make, and often a big worry to implement. Greenway Logistics believes that outsourcing is the best solution for many companies because it results in lower and more flexible costs, better dealing with peaks and turnover developments and the possibilities to improve the quality of the deliveries. Greenway Logistics is working closely together with VIM (vimdscr.nl), a 3PL and 4PL logistic service provider for retailers and suppliers.
Whereas Greenway Logistics has more of a mediation role and works on the bundling of logistics with a number of transport firms, VIM is the ‘one-stop-shop’ partner for any company that is considering to outsource its logistics. Not only will VIM organize all logistic activities centrally, it can also help with the integration of IT systems and human resources. Of course VIM makes use of the collective agreements of Greenway Logistics. An often complex and costly business as outsourcing logistics suddenly becomes a simple and cheap solution for companies that want to focus on their core business.
