Leafhill® is the customer's 4PL* logistics department, a service professional who manages the company's logistics services more efficiently, professionally, and produces savings.
Leafhill® - Logistics Department
Professional and experienced logistics professionals cost-effectively provide all logistics department services to meet the changing needs of the customer company. The scope of the service can be flexibly scaled from a comprehensive "turnkey" service to an additional resource for the logistics department as needed.
Today, transportation and supply chain management require deeper industry expertise and experience to cope with complex assignments. Sometimes logistics tasks are also part of the purchasing, sales, or project manager's work, which affects the core business. A skilled and experienced logistics professional can often complete the task in a fraction of the time.
A comprehensive and cost-effective transport solution is not available from a single transport company, freight forwarder, shipping company, or airline that can meet all logistics needs. Varying and different transportation dimensions, weights, locations, special needs, and urgency require different operators to achieve optimal results. Outsourced logistics department can produce and manage multiple actors, so that the customer company receives all services from one stop.
We operate in all our services in accordance with the general provisions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders (PSYM 2015). When coordinating transport, we act on behalf of the customer in accordance with Section 22 of PSYM. Link: PSYM 2015.

Fourt Party Logistics (4PL)
Our operating model is based on the so-called 4PL operating model.
