Yusen Logistics will open a 24,000-square-meter warehouse in Pokrov, a suburb of Moscow, in January.
The company said that due to the growing demand for consumer goods products, especially for items such as large electrical appliances, warehouse capacity has become tight, so it is expanding operations.
Combined with its second location, a 10,000-square-meter warehouse in St. Petersburg, Yusen Logistics offers more than 30,000 square meters of warehouse space in the country.
Services at the new facility will include warehousing and inventory management, as well as inland transportation services. Appliance makers and retail equipment manufacturers are among the company’s customers at the new location.
As an end-to-end logistics services provider, Yusen Logistics continues to expand its ocean and air freight forwarding services in the region. In September, the company opened an office in St. Petersburg airport, Pulkovo, to support its growing air freight forwarding business. In addition, it recently launched an ocean freight forwarding service from the Black Sea, with a hub at Novorossiysk.
