Added Value Logistics Publications Ltd

The monographs are supported and sold by the Institute of Logistics in the UK (plus their equivalent in Holland) and the Freight Transport Association. Through these routes to market the current monographs, they have been sold in every continent and 28 different countries in the world.

By the end of 2010 AVLP aims to have more than 15 titles in print and extend the route to market these publications through a a further four or five distribution channels.
AVLP also produces "research papers" on specific logistics topics of interest normally to clients of Added Value Logistics Consulting Ltd. These research papers are sold for a short period (typically 4-6 months) and to a particularly limited target market, addressed by mail shots and telephone interviews only.
Both the monographs and research papers are written by Management Consultants and Practising Managers known to or who work with Added Value Logistics Consulting Ltd.
