Warehousing as required
As a fulfillment and logistics service provider, we offer flexible storage space in our logistics center in Koblenz.

We will work with you to design an industry-specific and efficient picking system to process orders just-in-time, just-in-sequence or according to your needs and campaign. Whether flexible processes for promotional goods, temperature-controlled logistics or pre-FBA for your Amazon trade – with Apiando you can rely on individual concepts for order picking including value added services.
