Yusen delivers the Galaxy from far far away

Yusen Logistics has been working with Samsung to ensure the smooth launch of its new Galaxy S4 mobile phone, after its arrival from the Far East due to large volumes of the phone being pre-sold.

Yusen has said it successfully delivered all the volume to Samsung’s UK customer base within 12 hours of arrival into the warehouse, and, thanks to the success of the company’s range of smartphones, is set to deliver 50 per cent more phones than last year.

Ian Ulvmoen, European logistics director at Samsung, said: “The demands of the high value business have changed the traditional supply chain and Yusen Logistics have turned conventional day 3 into day 1, providing a dynamic same day solution right from the plane landing, through to direct delivery to customers in the UK.”
