Operations

AbbVie Logistics (VLOG) in Zwolle is a global hub where approximately 145 people provide Global Supply Chain Planning & Distribution, Finance and Quality Services for all our medicines worldwide.

Abbvie Logistics is AbbVie’s international supply chain Control Tower, as we are working with multiple disciplines and functions together to make sure we deliver the right product at the right place at the right time.

We are connecting the dots and creating a global circle of care where we put the patient at the center of everything we do. Within VLOG we work with different distribution models and we have our distribution center in Venlo. As we have a global focus, so is our diverse workforce: within our site in Zwolle we have 23 different nationalities and we speak 20 different languages. English is our main language spoken on the work floor and talent development, empowerment and diversity are important values for our control tower and are drivers for our VLOG culture.

Together we can make a remarkable impact!
