Yusen Logistics to enter UK market

Yusen Logistics will officially launch operations in the UK next week. The company, formed from the integration of NYK Logistics and Yusen Air & Sea Service (YAS), has billed itself as “a new comprehensive logistics provider”.

Described as a “one-stop shop”, Yusen Logistics will offer “warehousing, distribution, air/ocean freight forwarding and supply chain management in one package”.

Yusen Logistics will provide solutions ranging from stand-alone operations to international supply chains. It has “specialist experience in the automobile, consumer electronics, retail, pharmaceutical and environmental equipment sectors”, a statement said.

Alex Okamoto, managing director, Yusen Logistics Europe, said: “As the UK market represents the largest individual share of our logistics business in Europe, the integration of NYK Logistics and YAS in the UK marks a critical stage in the overall European process.”

In addition, Ian Veitch, managing director, Yusen Logistics UK, said: “Yusen Logistics offers customers no less than a truly comprehensive logistics service, which is of huge value in today’s fast moving and highly complex supply chain.

“This is a very exciting day for our business and we are delighted that the process is going ahead smoothly and on time.”
