Value Added Services

Value added services are additional tasks that go beyond normal logistics processes and that you perform in the warehouse for yourself or your customers (e.g. special packaging, labeling, and quality controls). The LFS warehouse management system offers a powerful module that takes over management of the value added services in your warehouse and can be integrated into any standard process (e.g. packaging) as an add-on.

On this course, you will learn about the extensive different applications of value added services (VAS). We consider how to create and implement VAS and run through practical exercises on mobile data recording equipment and on screen at set-up workstations, until you are confident with the system. This includes configuring routes, which can be used to manage performance of VAS. Finally, the course looks at how to bill VAS via logistics services.

It is a good idea to book this course in combination with the "Logistics services" course, as the two courses are closely related and complementary.
