Third-party logistics provider (3PL) Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc. has changed the name of its Warehouse Division to the Contract Logistics Group to reflect the increased array of customized services it now offers clients, the company said Thursday.
Yusen offers logistics capabilities including reverse logistics, order fulfillment and distribution, transloading, yard management, cross dock, and drayage management. The Secaucus, N.J.-based company supports those services with 14 U.S. warehouse facilities containing more than 2.1 million square feet, all linked together by warehouse, transload, and yard management software platforms, Yusen said.
"The new name reflects the growing variety and scope of services that we provide to our customers," Gerald Hofmann, senior vice president and general manager of the new Contract Logistics Group, said in a release. "We are expanding our capabilities to provide customized integrated solutions and deepen client relationships."
The rebranding of its warehouse division follows another move this week, when Yusen announced it had formed a Transportation Solutions Group (TSG) to create customized offerings such as specialized trucking services, product handling, and managed transportation services. The TSG will collaborate with Yusen's global network, which supports an air, ocean, and land transportation system with more than 500 offices in 42 countries and regions.
