Yusen Logistics announced today it will expand operations in Busan, South Korea, to reduce lead time and lower transportation costs for customers located along the coast of the Sea of Japan.
Yusen operates a 22,000-square-meter warehouse at Busan New Port, one of Asia’s largest ports. Located on a busy shipping route near major markets like China and Japan, the port is a gateway between Asia and the Pacific Ocean.
Customers using sea routes between Busan and the Sea of Japan can reduce lead time and lower transportation costs, Yusen said. In addition, it said, sea routes eliminate the need for personnel, warehousing and storage sites in Japan.
