[ May 20, 2017   //   ]

Leading automotive supply chain provider Yusen Logistics (Europe) BV received a major award from Toyota Motor Europe (TME) at the Toyota Motor Europe Annual Business Meeting and Supplier Award Ceremony in Brussels.

Presented by Masahisa Nagata, TME Executive Vice President R&D, Purchasing & PE, the prestigious Gold Award recognizes the way in which Yusen Logistics has managed the recent acquisition of Transfreight Automotive Logistics Europe, also a key supply chain provider to Toyota Motor Europe.

Commenting on the award, Jean-Christophe Deville, Purchasing Director, TME praised the smooth transition, timely and clear communications and excellent delivery and supply capability shown by Yusen Logistics.

On receiving the trophy, Ian Veitch, CRO Yusen Logistics Europe, commented: “I am absolutely delighted to receive this award on behalf of Yusen Logistics. It is great to be recognized by TME for the smooth integration of this acquisition. The Transfreight business offers an excellent fit for Yusen Logistics, with a service offer and regional focus which complement Yusen Logistics’ infrastructure. We will ensure that TME continues to benefit from the combined organization’s industry expertise and broad-based supply chain solutions.”

This expanded infrastructure enhances Yusen Logistics’ existing automotive network capability by adding key network consolidation points in Western Europe, as well as multi-modal possibilities running between Northern and Southern Europe. In particular, the acquisition boosts Yusen Logistics’ footprint and skill base in Northern France, an area with a high density of automotive players (tier ones and OEMs).
