VVA/VM - we know your industry

As Arvato’s first service-providing business and the precursor of Arvato, we have been providing integrated, comprehensive services for media companies in the B2B und B2C areas for about 60 years.

Vereinigte Verlagsauslieferung (VVA – Arvato Media GmbH) delivers books, CDs, magazines, paper, office and stationery supplies for more than 200 publishing companies as well as games to retail and end users from its three locations in Gütersloh, Verl and Gilching (Verlegerdienst München).

With complementary solutions in the logistics, sales and financial area, we realize together with our customers an individual and market-appropriate complete service from a single source – digitally and physically for B2B and B2C customers.

We have decades of experience in the logistics business as a publishing supplier. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bertelsmann AG and integrated in the Arvato business area Supply Chain Solutions, which makes us a strong partner in the media world.

New shuttle system for more efficiency

We have automated and modernized our distribution center at our headquarters in Gütersloh during ongoing operations. The shuttle warehouse with picking system from SSI Schäfer has expanded the capacities in the area of immediately available article bins to a total of more than 60,000 locations. In addition, the new solution is maximally scalable. If the trend of growing order volumes continues, we can continue to ensure the highest level of delivery reliability to our customers and their customers.
