Yusen Logistics To Open New Facility in Chicago

Secaucus, New Jersey -
Yusen Logistics (Americas), the global logistics and supply chain provider, is pleased to announce the opening of their new 229,000 square foot warehouse in Chicago, IL. The new branch will officially open on May 20th and will employ a staff of 170.

With a total warehouse area of 185,000 square feet dedicated to distribution and CFS services, Chicago is one of the largest facilities in Yusen Logistics’ network. The facility is nearly double the size of its predecessor and allows Yusen Logistics to keep pace with their growing customer demands. The facility boasts a climate controlled area of 15,000 square feet, with separate freezer and refrigerated units totaling 3,000 square feet to accommodate the company’s growing perishable items customer base. The new facility will be certified by the Transportation and Safety Administration (TSA) to screen air cargo prior to providing it to an airline for shipment.

The new branch is strategically located close to the area’s major highway system and a short drive from the cargo entrance of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. This will allow the company to reach all key production and distribution markets in the region, acting as a gateway to the Central U.S. for Yusen Logistics.

The Chicago facility will be an integral part in reinforcing the company’s ability to provide customers with integrated service options such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, value added services, cargo collection and delivery. The Chicago facility will support Yusen Logistics’ Direct LCL Service from Hong Kong and Japan by serving as a CFS for inbound shipments, enabling expedited sorting and distribution throughout the U.S. The facility will also serve as a key to Yusen Logistics’ growth in the automotive industry, offering a twice weekly shuttle truck service out of Chicago to OEM parts distribution centers in Silao, Guanajuato.

“Chicago is a key market for Yusen Logistics,” said Scott Corless, Senior Vice President and GM, International Division. “We have operated facilities in Chicago since 1972 and this new facility will allow us to offer our customers enhanced service options.” Yusen Logistics is a leading global provider of international and domestic transportation services, operating a network of more than 60 facilities throughout North and South America.
