Van Bodegraven Associates (VBA) was formed to provide supply chain and logistics management consulting services to clients small and large, in a wide spectrum of industries; at varying levels of sophistication and best-practice status; who genuinely want to improve performance; and who are ready for a different kind of consulting experience, and relationship.
We work exclusively in the supply chain logistics arena, recognizing that we can be many things to many clients, but not all things to all clients. Our intent is to take on only those assignments that we are capable of accomplishing, with superior and tangible results, and that are rooted in client commitment to change and achievement.
