4PL & Logistics Consulting

Rotra is more than just a shipping agent. With our specialist expertise, we conduct a 4PL - Fourth Party Logistics Service Provider. A 4PL is a chain director that provides the best solution for the supply chain of its client. Adjustment of logistic processes in a network of organizations with product streams, where flexibility is more and more increasingly demanded, is complex. With its 4PL concepts, Rotra brings together the best and most suitable logistic parties and integrates these services to a final solution. In addition to the physical stream, we also take care of your information, financial and judicial streams. Curious about the possibilities? Our Sales team is looking forward to be of any help, please contact us.

Your Logistics Activities Outsourced

If you opt for outsourcing, a half-solution is no use to you. You want to be able to focus all your attention on your core business. And to do so you have to be able to outsource your logistic activities as completely as possible, perhaps even as an integrated whole. Rotra can pack, repackage and label your goods for you, and even assemble them if necessary. The goods can be stored until you indicate that they are to be delivered to your customer by road, air or sea freight.

  • Storage
  • Assembly of components and subproducts
  • Pick & Pack
  • Order & vendor management
  • Stock management
