Yusen Logistics expands its services in New Zealand

04-Aug-2017 Yusen Logistics (Australia) Pty. Ltd., has commenced ocean and air freight forwarding operations to and from New Zealand servicing our global network and partners. We initially commenced in late 2016 servicing business customers to and from Australia and now offer global coverage that includes sophisticated logistics services across the entire supply chain.

In March 2016, we acquired Hitech Asia Pacific, a company that owned bases in Australia and New Zealand and focused on the transportation of sensitive and specialty projects. This marked our first step into New Zealand’s domestic logistics market. The expansion with these services has therefore enabled us to provide our New Zealand customers with a supply chain logistics service that now also caters and utilizes our global network.

Our new facility site is located near Auckland Airport and offers a full range of integrated supply chain solutions, including air and ocean freight services, land transportation, customs clearance and contract logistics and transport services including sensitive freight capabilities. Ocean freight forwarding is mostly to and from the Port of Auckland, which is New Zealand’s primary port; though we have coverage with all New Zealand Ports, Air freight forwarding also takes place to and from the country’s major airports, including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch Airports. At the same time, we have established logistics facilities that will enable us to provide contract logistics services suited to our customers’ needs.

Establishing our own operations in New Zealand was ultimately essential to increase our global network and office coverage. Our aim was increase our in-market customer contact with New Zealand customers and provide them with not only various global tradelanes but also various specialty industries like Retail, Healthcare, Automotive, Technology, Aerospace to name a few key business verticals.

We are very excited with our future in New Zealand and will continue to look to enhance our array of services to compliment the Yusen Logistics global network.
