Yusen Logistics Upgrades Heathrow Air Freight Gateway

With the continued expansion of its UK air freight operation, Yusen Logistics has invested in relocating and upgrading its key UK Air Freight Gateway at Heathrow.

Now fully operational, the new facility provides fully integrated, ultra-high security warehousing space with temperature controlled processing capability. This fulfills the stringent requirements for food and pharmaceuticals – both rapidly growing parts of Yusen Logistics’ business.

Just minutes from London Heathrow Airport and equipped with the latest cargo handling technology, the new operation is able to process increased volumes of aircraft pallets. The operation is AEO, IATA, CAA and ISO accredited and is the first new External Temporary Storage Facility (ETSF) in Yusen Logistics UK. The facility offers customers bonded storage and the ability to hold freight until Customs cleared with the associated fiscal benefits.

Yusen Logistics’ UK Forwarding Business Unit Director, Mr. Roger Warlow commented: “This new air freight operation is superbly located for easy access into Heathrow and enables us to further enhance our services to our Air Freight customers seeking high quality solutions for their cargo.”
