AstraZeneca chooses Yusen for UK-Australia operation

Yusen Logistics has launched a service to transport prescription drugs from the UK to Australia for AstraZeneca.
Yusen moves cargo by air from AstraZeneca’s UK central warehouse in Macclesfield, Cheshire, to Sydney.

Yusen will apply thermal protection to each individual pallet and time all air cargo movements to arrive in Sydney at the coolest time of the day, hoping to maintain the goods’ strict temperature regime.

Having worked together since 2007, AstraZeneca’s Julian Wann, global category lead: freight & logistics, said: “The relationship is one that has matured since its inception.

“The decision to give Yusen Logistics this business allows us to assess the relationship in different areas and identify further potential opportunities.”
