Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc., a leading third-party logistics provider, has received the 2015 Outstanding Partnership Award from Target Corporation in recognition of its high level of commitment during last year’s peak season.

Target honored Yusen Logistics for exceptional service in executing the largest peak season in the Port of Los Angeles to date, which saw an increase of overall cargo volumes by 23 percent at the end of 2015. At its Carson, CA campus, Yusen Logistics ensured that Target’s freight was processed as quickly and cost effectively as possible by coordinating drayage, increasing building production, managing outbound flow and arranging additional capacity when needed.

In addition, Yusen Logistics dedicated additional capacity within its Carson campus to accommodate the increased volume from Target, and by expanding yard space, was able to process more than 1,800 containers in one week.

Yusen Logistics received the Outstanding Partnership Award at Target’s Annual International Transportation Conference recently held at its corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, MN.

“Beyond execution, Yusen Logistics was able to effectively communicate ongoing operational updates in the market through daily calls and daily reports,” said Brian Kippley, Director of International Logistics at Target, who noted Yusen Logistics’ Steve Frasco as a key champion in the process. “Throughout this timeframe, Steve specifically led through market challenges, communicated a clear plan and followed through, which strengthened the strategic partnership between Target and Yusen Logistics.”

“It is truly an honor to receive this award from Target and a testament to our commitment to the quality, value and service we deliver to our customers every day,” said Frasco, the company’s Sr. Director Operations and General Manager, West Coast. “Target is a long-standing customer of ours and we look forward to a continued successful partnership.”
