At Barentz we deliver tailored logistic solutions, that meet your needs, on a local, regional or global level. We offer an extensive supply chain network, with a local warehouse in every country we operate.

For products requiring special climatic or safety conditions (e.g. pharmaceuticals) we offer highly specialized warehousing and transportation conditions.

From 24/7 stock management systems to last minute customer requests for next day requirements, our flexible supply chain network structure enables us to offer any solution you want.
