Yusen Logistics upgrades UK Air Freight Gateway at Heathrow


Yusen logistics announced that it has invested in relocating and upgrading its key UK Air Freight Gateway at Heathrow airport.

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

The operation of the facility is AEO, IATA, CAA and ISO accredited and is the first new External Temporary Storage Facility in Yusen Logistics UK. The facility offers customers bonded storage and the ability to hold freight until customs cleared.

Yusen Logistics’ UK Forwarding business unit Director, Roger Warlow said, “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.”
