ACSEP - Digital Supply Chain Logistics - France

Business services provide added value for your company

At the heart of Aix-Marseille-Provence’s economic strategy is its world-class business services sector. Regardless of the area of activity, this network ensures top-quality work flow management, whether it be the flows of products, material, or information.

The Provence area benefits from an enormous competitive advantage when it comes to digital logistics thanks to both a range of vibrant tech start-ups or established companies dedicated to contactless supply chain management such as Traxens, Smart Packaging Solution, Editag, ADD, Mapping Control, Tagsys, or EuroShaktiware. These companies offer cutting-edge, innovative solutions for real-time tracking of merchandise and material at every step of the supply chain.

The Marseille-Fos Port is also undergoing a digital transformation so it can provide clients and companies with the latest logistical services. As a result as a heavy investment in R&D, the port now has the pioneering information technology systems. There is the CI5 for digital logistics, which was developed by Marseille Gyptis International, and Neptune Port, a digital tool developed for port users that provides a huge efficiency advantage when it comes to making customs declarations and sharing information across French or European administrative networks.

With the a heavy concentration of offices for large-scale retail distrubtion companies in the Bouches-du-Rhône (supermarkets such as E.Leclerc, Intermarché, Carrefour Hyper, Super U, Lidl, or Géant Casino, sporting goods chains like Décathlon, hardware and DIY stores like Castorama, furniture retailers like Ikea, electronics retailers like Darty or GiFi...), the area also provides enormous opportunities for logistics experts, consultancy firms, software engineers and other companies that provide services for transport and logistics.
