Yusen Logistics expands air freight forwarding operations in Mexico

Yusen Logistics (Mexico) S.A. DE C.V. announced that it has opened two offices at Mexico City Airport, one inside and one outside its boundary. By establishing an owned base at the airport to manage its air transportation operations, the company aims to realize competitive freight procurement and detailed transportation management of imported and exported air freight.

Yusen Logistics states that, with the rapid growth of the automotive industry and increase in imported freight in Mexico, the need for detailed transportation management is rising. Therefore Yusen Logistics has opened a customs office for air import within the free trade zone of Mexico City Airport. Previously the company conducted these operations through an agency. Having brought these operations under direct control the company plans to implement various kinds of transportation management, such as checking freight status within airport transit shed, ensuring efficient customs clearance and supervising loading of trucks.

In addition to the customs office Yusen Logistics has opened a cross dock office for air export has outside the airport. This new facility brings tasks previously handled by an agency, such as negotiating freight charges with airlines and issuing air waybills, under Yusen’s direct control. With this direct control Yusen Logistics plans to provide competitive freight charge procurement and a higher quality transportation operation. The company also plans to further improve the quality and marketing power of its air transportation service for freight departing from and arriving in Mexico by arranging a similar structure at Guadaljara and Monterey airports.
