In the autumn of 2018, ILG was acquired by Yusen Logistics, a large global corporation specialising in freight forwarding services and supply chain management. So how will this affect the service you receive from us?
Yusen Logistics originated as Kokusai Ryoko Kosha in Japan in 1955, specialising in air cargo. The English name changed to Yusen Air and Sea Service Co., Ltd in 1961, and in the 1980s the company began to expand its services across Asia and into Europe and the Americas. In the last 20 years, the company has continued to grow through mergers and acquisitions, adding sea freight to its core services.
In 2010, Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd was inaugurated and in 2018 it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, with over 24,000 employees in 44 countries and domestic transport networks in place in all major markets. And in the same year, ILG joined the Yusen Logistics family.
As such, we can offer the following added benefits to our customers.
Our access to Yusen Logistics’ sea freight and air cargo operations gives us more strength in depth at the global freight forwarding stage. That means even more options available to our customers sending goods overseas.
With over 500 bases and almost 2.65million sq.m of strategically positioned warehouse space worldwide, Yusen Logistics gives us the backing of a genuine giant in the business. That means even greater reliability for our customers, a smoother international operation and more negotiating power for us to keep costs low.
Yusen Logistics has 104 bases in Europe, which means customers using our fulfilment service can access these facilities to split stock between the UK and the European Union – something many businesses are considering in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit. We will be bringing our values and 3pl expertise to bear on these facilities, so customers will receive the same standard of customer service in Europe as they are used to in the UK.
