Yusen Logistics announces the launch of the South East Asia Link service (SEAL) – a cross-border trucking service for Indochina. By offering a road solution which is more economical than air freight forwarding and quicker than ocean freight forwarding, Yusen Logistics is introducing an alternative in response to the increasingly varied logistics requirements of customers in the region.

"SEAL" is a cross-border trucking service which connects Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, providing Full Truck Load service (FTL) as well as Less than Truck Load (LTL) solutions. The service operates five times a week between Singapore and Malaysia, and runs two to three times a week connecting Malaysia with its northern neighbors Thailand (Bangkok) and Vietnam (Hanoi).

The "SEAL" service helps to cut both cost and lead times, in comparison with other logistics modes. For example, in the high-demand corridor between the Thai and Vietnamese capitals, the price is approximately half that of air freight forwarding, while 10 days quicker than for ocean freight movement. All vehicles in the fleet are equipped with GPS, helping to ensure a well-equipped system for confirming freight status and for quality assurance.

Yusen Logistics is responding to growing demand with innovative services, increased capacity on existing routes, an expanded network to Myanmar and by offering integrated multi-modal transportation solutions with air and ocean freight forwarding.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
