Yusen offers groundbreaking import service in Russia

[ December 16, 2016   //   ]

Yusen Logistics has launched air import consolidation services at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport and Domodedovo airports and for Pulkovo in St Petersburg.

The forwarder describes them as “a genuine innovation in the Russian transportation industry, with Yusen Logistics being the first international airfreight forwarder to offer such consolidation services at these three airports. Previously only airport to airport services under airline direct air waybills (DAWB) were available.

Yusen Logistics Russia’s airfreight business unit manager, Nadezhda Krutiy, commented: “By using Yusen Logistics’ house airway bill import consolidation service, customers can benefit from freight charges collect service, full visibility of cargo status, final mile delivery and warehousing if required, all under Yusen Logistics’ house airway bill.”

The consolidation operation also includes customs clearance services in Moscow and St Petersburg, operated by Yusen Logistics RUS LLC’s 100% owned subsidiary Yusen Terminal Logopark.

Managing director, Yusen Logistics Russia, Albert Abdulin, added: “We are continuously looking for ways to innovate, grow and engage our global network to give our customers the best possible services and support them in doing their business in Russia.”
