Yusen Logistics gears up for growth with technology investments!

Published: 04 Dec 2018

Over the past year, the award winning logistics provider, Yusen Logistics UK (www.yusen-logistics.com), has made a number of significant investments in their infrastructure and capability – driving their competitive advantage and pushing them forwards as one of the leading innovative 3PLs in the UK.  

Most recently, is their investment in CarLo -  a transport management system designed specifically to manage and optimise an asset light operation.  This strategic move supports their ambitious growth plans for both the Healthcare vertical and their European Control Tower offering. 

Leading the implementation of the project, Ralph Griffiths, I.T. Business Systems Manager for Yusen Logistics UK, described CarLo as “the ideal platform to grow and develop our service offerings, with real cost-saving and efficiency benefits that will directly improve order management workflows”. 

The increased capabilities that CarLo delivers enables further automation and standardisation of operational processes, removing the requirement for additional manual intervention. This vastly improves order management and workflows through increased efficiency and accuracy, leading to better business control and system compliance.

Ralph further added: “The software covers all workflow elements involved with the successful execution of a dynamic operation, from complete control of master data to order entry and planning. 

By integrating with our innovative VISIONi software, our pioneering in-house developed track and trace system, it provides complete control for our customers’ shipments.”

With clients from some of the world’s largest and most respected healthcare organisations, Yusen Logistics’ European Control Tower has proven capabilities that they now look to extend to their other key verticals: technology, food logistics, automotive, aerospace and retail.
