End-to-end supply chain management, incorporating the entire supply chain from start to finish, is a complex and hard-to-manage business. That is why Yusen Logistics has struck up a long-term relationship with Prologis since 2007 as it seeks to become the world’s preferred end-to-end supply chain logistics company by applying insight, service quality and innovation to create sustainable growth.
Yusen’s latest expansion is a case in point. In 2019 Prologis delivered on time and budget a 18,300 square meter development at Prologis Park Wrocław IV for the Tokyo-based company, which was relocating from a smaller facility at the park.
The new BTS is specifically designed to accommodate the customer’s processes, especially in terms of effective use of space for racking which has been completely optimised for its operations. Building improvements include above-average building depth of over 130 meters; additional lighting in the loading area; LED lighting throughout the entire building; a battery room and shelter for pallets; as well as a truck weighbridge.
An innovative company demands similar qualities in its suppliers and the building includes a smart metering system that allows for remote monitoring and control of all the building’s utilities as well as the Singu Facility Management platform. To improve the wellbeing of Yusen personnel, many parking spaces in the park are assigned to the facility and the office space is designed to allow the optimal flow of employees, drivers and office workers.
“Our long-term relationship with Prologis is based on a strong partnership and close cooperation. Since 2007, we have been successfully growing our business at Prologis Park Wroclaw IV and our decision to further develop our operations at this park was a natural move,” says Marek Więckowicz, Managing Director, Yusen Logistics.
“We are committed to maintaining long-term relationships with our customers, which have included Yusen Logistics since 2007, and to responding to any further needs as they grow their businesses. Yusen Logistics’ decision to further develop their business in our park is a sign of satisfaction with the current location and confidence in their partnership with us,” says Magdalena Kostjan, leasing manager Prologis Poland.
The location of Prologis Park Wrocław IV is key to Yusen’s operations, whose scope covers all modes of transportation, including international freight forwarding, warehousing, origin cargo management, project cargo and tailored supply chain solution development and management.
Prologis Park Wrocław IV is located in an area that is ideal place for the business expansion of Yusen. Just 35 kilometers from downtown Wrocław and adjacent to the A4 motorway (Berlin - Wrocław - Kraków - Ukraine), the park offers quick and easy connections to major population centers in Poland and across Europe. Being within comfortable commuting distance from Wrocław also provides access to a well-educated workforce – one of the most important location factors for companies nowadays.
