VVA/VM - we know your industry

As Arvato’s first service-providing business and the precursor of Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, 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.
