World leading total logistics provider Yusen Logistics has opened a new warehouse facility at the Rheinhausen site in Duisburg, Germany.
The new acquisition extends Yusen’s storage capacity in the area by 8700 m², while the current total storage capacity of the multi warehouse site sits at around 62,000 m². The site is in the largest inland port in Europe, and the expanded storage complex offers better access to the major European road networks.
The site is also close to a container terminal that has rail and inland waterway connections to the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam.
This new warehouse will enable Yusen Logistics to extend its value added services and focus on the optimal integration of customer value chains, including new areas such as dangerous goods.
The logistics giant, which has 470 sites in 40 countries around the world, is planning to offer more value added services for its customers in addition to its conventional warehousing and X-dock services for the B2B sector.
Yusen Logistics, which has also expanded the returns-logistics area, invested in a fully automated sorting machine that classifies parcels according to customer, destination and article.
Yusen Logistics Germany managing director Mario Cavallucci said: “With this investment we are expanding opportunities in the future, to grow profitably and to offer our customers tailored solutions.”
