Yusen seeks more medicines

[ March 31, 2014   //   ]

Yusen Logistics is seeing major growth in temperature controlled pharmaceutical volumes to and from Japan and Oceania, as well as international cross trade products. Volumes for 2013/14 are up 73% on the previous year, says the NYK Group forwarder.

API manufacturers (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) are increasingly looking to Yusen Logistics to provide bespoke airfreight solutions as part of their total supply chains for these extremely valuable and temperature sensitive products.

David Young, Business Development Manager and Global Airfreight Specialist at Yusen Logistics commented: “We’re seeing major increases in demand for specialist shipments for temperature controlled pharmaceutical products including APIs from areas such as Japan and Oceania.”
