Yusen Logistics, the global logistics and supply chain provider, has added to its dedicated less-than-container-load (LCL) service portfolio with a new service from Taiwan to Los Angeles.
The direct service sails from Keelung every Tuesday and arrives at Los Angeles 13 days later, and is supported by a domestic distribution network and inland point intermodal (IPI) service to all major inland destinations in the US.
Yusen Logistics has been bolstering its provision of LCL services to match increased demand in flexible shipping options. Its trans-Pacific network now includes over 16 dedicated LCL options from Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia and China, as well as a complete full-container-load (FCL) service portfolio.
“As we continue to develop our LCL network, we’re seeing a marked shift in how our customers use the service. LCL is now serving as a transport option that supports improved order management and domestic distribution, given its flexibility and reliability,” said Joseph Goldman, Director of Operations for Yusen Logistics Americas. “We are also combining the service with our CHB product and dedicated deconsolidation facility in LA to really improve the overall efficiency and ease of importing from Asia. As part of our overall growth strategy, we will continue to develop our dedicated LCL network globally to support our customers’ business and provide ongoing value.”
