Yusen Logistics, the freight forwarding and logistics subsidiary of the NYK Group, said Monday it has started a new less-than-containerload (LCL) service from Hong Kong to Rotterdam.
The direct service sails from Hong Kong every Sunday and arrives at Rotterdam 26 days later, and is supported by a domestic distribution network service to all major inland destinations.
Yusen Logistics has been bolstering its provision of LCL services to match increased demand in flexible shipping options. This latest addition further strengthens its existing hub network ex-Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore, as well as a complete full-containerload (FCL) service portfolio.
Leo Schoovers, general manager of forwarding in the Benelux countries, said the service was set up "in response to growing demand from our existing customers."
Yusen Logistics operates a global air and ocean forwarding service from an office network spanning the United States, Europe and Asia, supported by origin consolidation services, customs brokerage, and warehousing and distribution.
