Yusen Logistics Supporting Traidcraft

Yusen Logistics is providing international supply chain solutions for Traidcraft, the UK's leading fair trade organisation. Traidcraft fights poverty through trade, helping people in developing countries to transform their lives.

The operation, which is based at Yusen Logistics’ strategically located Newcastle site, includes inbound and outbound global flows, as well as cross-docking shipments for the range of ingredients going into Fairtrade bars which are then sold through the Traidcraft network.

Yusen Logistics is handling a number of trade lanes for Traidcraft, including FCL shipments to New York, comprising both container build on-site and cross-docking shipments from the Czech Republic. The operation also includes receipt of bulk product, including raisins, sultanas and sugar, from a wide variety of countries of origin, including Chile and Malawi. The product, which arrives in ocean containers, is Customs cleared and delivered to Newcastle for devanning and handballing, with pallets built and shrink wrapped prior to storage and onward distribution through the Traidcraft network.
