Yusen Logistics Launches Double Deck Ocean Container Transport on All Routes

Yusen Logistics announces the launch of an ocean transportation service which enables double stacking of product inside ocean containers, through the installation of specialized decks.

Trial movements in April confirmed the security of the decks and, with increasing demand for the transportation of electrical products, chemicals, food products and motorcycles, Yusen Logistics has launched this service on all transport lanes operated by its network. This provides flexible solutions as the double deck can be customized according to individual customer requirements.

The service is based around the specialized deck* -- the result of collaborative development between NYK and its R&D subsidiary MTI -- being installed inside the container, dividing the interior into upper and lower sections, to optimize utilization.

The new system will generate a number of benefits, including improved loading efficiency, reduced transportation costs and reduced CO2 emissions.

* The specialized decks are designed to be suspended from the roof of the container. The companies involved in the development of this technology are currently applying for patents.

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.
