Yusen Logistics Russia has been appointed by General Motors DAT/CIS to provide final mile inbound delivery services in Russia.
This new business represents a further step in the development of the relationship between GM and Yusen Logistics in Russia, with the third-party logistics provider (3PL) now providing delivery solutions for service parts for the Opel, Chevrolet and Cadillac brands.
With a wide range of parts being moved into Russia, the Yusen Logistics service involves the following supply chain elements:
• The movement of GM Korea and SPOI containers to the Moscow or Yekaterinburg Parts Distribution Centers (PDC) from St. Petersburg port
• The storage of non-bonded containers at the container yard
• The movement of GM UZ containers arriving in Moscow by rail to the Moscow PDC
• The movement of Korean containers arriving at Yekaterinburg by rail to the Yekaterinburg PDC
This contract builds on Yusen Logistics Russia’s previous experience working with GM, which commenced in 2011 with warehousing operations at Saint-Petersburg for General Motors Auto. In 2013, the operations were expanded to include ex-works transportation services from Thailand to Moscow via Saint-Petersburg for General Motors CIS.
Ekaterina Menshikova, Logistics Manager, GME, General Motors Russia, commented: “I would like to formally congratulate you on being awarded the contract for the ‘Last Mile’ Inbound Deliveries.”
Dennis Pastukhov, Commercial Director, Yusen Logistics Russia added: “We are delighted about the award of this business by GM. This builds on the relationship between our two companies that has been developing since 2011.”
