BVL International - The Global Supply Chain Network

International Events

For a number of years now, BVL has been organising highly respected supply chain events with international partners in places like Budapest, Bratislava, Moscow, Dubai, Shanghai, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Strong alliances have also been formed within the framework of the European Logistics Association (ELA), with LOGY in Finland, for example, and CEL-Logistica in Spain. Moreover, every October, supply chain managers from more than 40 countries, come together in Berlin for the annual International Supply Chain Conference.

BVL Chapters

The first international BVL chapter was founded in Shanghai in 2008, followed in 2010 by a second Chinese chapter in Beijing. There are meanwhile 10 BVL chapters outside Germany providing a local platform for the exchange of experience between international supply chain managers, for the discussion of innovative concepts and solutions and for personal and professional networking. Participation in the forums, presentations and company tours is free of charge.

The members of BVL form an open, active and international network offering access to the latest logistics insights and personal and professional benefits for all those who play an active role.
