Yusen Logistics is launching in Germany on 1st October, uniting NYK Logistics Germany and Yusen Air & Sea Service in the final phase of a European integration process which began with Poland and Hungary at the start of 2011.
Alex Okamoto, managing director of Yusen Logistics Europe, said: “We are absolutely delighted to launch Yusen Logistics in this fundamentally important market. It is also incredibly exciting to see our company now fully launched in Europe. Providing value-added services beyond the capabilities of other logistics providers, and with our primary responsibility always to the requirements of our customers, we are confident that Yusen Logistics will be a major player in the European logistics market.”
In April the integration took place in Russia, Spain, Benelux, the Czech Republic, Italy and the UK before continuing in France the following month.
