About Us

As part of a joint venture activity, VEU started providing Logistics and Warehousing services to its main automotive client in 1990.

Since then, VEU has grown organically and developed its range of services to become a preferred 3PL provider.

Additionally, VEU has, over the past 10 years, developed significant partnerships with its other customers such as Cummins Engines and Komatsu UK; supplying both of these global organisations with on-site 3PL activities and various other SCM (Supply Chain Management) services.

In 2007, VEU became a wholly owned subsidiary of Vantec Corporation and following a majority buy-out by Hitachi Transport System group in 2012, VEU became part of one of the largest global Third Party Logistics providers.

The Art of Monozukuri

Honouring our Japanese heritage, we practise and implement many Japanese philosophies and at the heart of them is Monozukuri. Monozukuri is a word unique to the Japanese language and has no direct English translation. Literally it means “the making of something”. However it incorporates not only the development of technology and processes, but is the embellishment of production with creativity, innovation and the art of craftsmanship.


In the traditional context Monozukuri relates to manufacturing, but as a development technique can be applied to any discipline. We rely on the Monozukuri culture within our organisation to develop the skills and abilities of our staff and shape their approach to evolve the quality of service we offer our clients. We harbour a collaborative culture between our internal departments, operational levels and externally with clients. This makes us truly unique within our industry and ensures we never employ a “one size fits all” approach to any of our solutions.


How does our Monozukuri affect you, the Client?

 •It ensures we respond to new requirements and develop enhanced solutions based on the client’s Business and Logistical or SCM (Supply Chain Management) requirements.

 •Our Solutions are designed to adapt and be flexible to the client’s demands.

 •Our IT Systems are customised to the clients work flow and can be integrated with their IT applications to form a fully synchronised system.

 •We provide highly knowledgeable staff that strive for continuous improvement and adapt to changes in the business environment and the clients supply chain requirements.

•We venture to improve on every element of our operations, react quickly by staying flexible, create and share knowledge throughout our company.


Vantec believes our clients need a 3PL Partner that will maintain and support all their efforts in improving their business and developing to adapt to emerging technologies, introduce new processes into improving the company’s performance and in extracting value from its Supply Network.
