Yusen Logistics expands TransAtlantic Airfreight Service

By: | at 12:42 PM | Channel(s): Air Cargo  Transport Intermediaries  

The Yusen Logistics Trans-Atlantic Service brings both global forwarding expertise and local market coverage to trans-Atlantic cargo management. With regular departures from Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London and Paris, the service is designed to ensure maximum stock availability with minimized risk to supply. The service makes use of the four key North American gateways: Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta and is based on partnerships with best-in-class airlines. With broad domestic networks in the United States, Continental Europe and the United Kingdom, Yusen Logistics is ideally placed to offer a one-stop-shop for an effective Trans-Atlantic solution. Under the Yusen Logistics umbrella of services, the company adds value through the seamless integration of customs clearance services, warehousing and fulfillment or destination DC or store delivery.

The Trans-Atlantic service is proving particularly attractive to Yusen Logistics’ clients in consumer electronics, retail, fashion and pharmaceuticals, sectors characterized by acute seasonality, frequent product launches and short product lifecycles.

Alan Whittaker, Senior Director, Business Products Division at Yusen Logistics Europe, commented: “Our clients are using our quality airfreight solutions as a vital tool in their supply chain mix, helping them to ‘future proof’ their products in today’s acutely competitive markets. Yusen Logistics’ solution-driven approach is supporting businesses in reducing transit times through improved shipment planning and visibility of the overall shipping process in the face of constant downward pressure on prices and shortening product lifecycles.”
