Yusen integrated freight service for Yamagata

Yusen Logistics is launching a container freight station in Yamagata, 180 miles north of Tokyo, with a consolidated shipment service involving ocean freight forwarding to receive cargo at the facility.

The new service, called Captain Consolidation Service Satellite Express, will integrate shuttle truck deliveries for air freight forwarding between Yamagata and Narita airport in Tokyo, with the consolidated shipment service for ocean freight forwarding. From Tokyo loads will be re-routed to 17 sites in Asia, including China, and 72 sites in North America.
