Second Russian warehouse for Yusen

[ December 12, 2013   //   ]

Yusen Logistics is to open a 24,000sq m warehouse in Pokrov, near Moscow, in January 2014. With growing demand for consumer goods, especially large electrical appliances, warehouse capacity has become tight.
The warehouse is located 20 kilometers south of Moscow and will be the second facility in Russia, the other being a 10,000sq m warehouse in St. Petersburg.
Services at the new facility will include warehousing and inventory management, as well as inland transportation services.

In September, Yusen opened an office in St. Petersburg airport to support its growing air freight forwarding business and recently launched an ocean freight forwarding service from the Black Sea, with a hub at Novorossiysk, where it is the only Japanese forwarder to own a base, as well as a service via the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Yusen Logistics also provides ocean freight forwarding services from the Russian ports of Saint Petersburg, Novorossiysk and Nakhodka Vostochny.
