Value Added Logistics
Inbound, storage and processing of orders is increasingly not sufficient for fulfilment of a webshop. To better respond to your demand, Krijgsman offers Value Added Logistics (VAL), in other words: additional logistics services that add value to your products and strengthen your supply chain. These services do not fall under our fixed services, but we are happy to carry out to provide you with a better service. We carry out some Value-Added Logistics regularly, and have automatically become part of our services, while other VAL activities are only carried out temporarily for a specific customer. Whether it's a simple task, or a complex operation that requires extra material, we are happy to do it for you.
Examples of Value Added Logistics
On a part of the stock stored with us, who perform Value Added Logistics to a greater or lesser extent. Which VAL activities we carry out exactly depends on the customer, the type of product and the consumer need. The most common Value-Added Logistics are the labeling of products by means of barcode stickers or special labels supplied by the customer. Packing also falls under Value Added Logistics. We are not talking about packing for shipping but packing the product itself. For example, in a protective box, in bubble wrap or in packaging that could not be delivered by the supplier. It is also possible to carry out quality checks. We check for damage caused by transport or manufacturing defects. If you receive multiple reports from customers about damaged items, it is quite possible that something went wrong during the manufacturing process or transport. With your approval, we will check the rest of the stock before we ship new orders. Because returns are not good for customer satisfaction.
Verschillende soorten VAL-activiteiten
All VAL activities at Krijgsman are carried out by employees under their own management. They are familiar with your products and therefore know exactly which actions they must perform. Are there any ambiguities? Then we will contact you to make sure that everything is carried out as desired. Do you have a large shipment with (inter)national orders? Then our employees look for these together and put together a pallet or large package. Are different products delivered in one package? Then we sort the products by type, color, or size. The Value-Added Logistics are carried out with the same efficiency and care as our other services. Our employees work professionally and quickly. This way your stock does not 'hang' and it is immediately available for open orders.
Do you have new products in the range and has the supplier not made clear or no photos available at all? Then we make professional photos of your products, according to your wishes. Whatever assignment needs to be carried out; we always discuss it with you first. Since the foundation of our family business in 1983, reliability has always been of paramount importance. It is an important part of our corporate culture, and we like to radiate that. A deal is a deal. Have you promised a customer something? Then we take over this promise and ensure that your customer's wishes are met. That is also one of our Value-Added Logistics. We are happy to discuss the possibilities with you, even if changes must be made later in the collaborations, that is no problem at all.
