Yusen Logistics UK Grows Global Solutions for Solar Energy Sector

Yusen Logistics UK (YLUK) has significantly increased its operations for clients in the solar energy sector, successfully delivering solar panels to support the construction of seven industrial multi-megawatt solar farms in just six months.

YLUK has successfully delivered high value and oversized items such as solar panels, transformers and generators direct to end-user sites from multiple origin points across South East Asia.

Providing end-to-end supply chain solutions including optimised route planning and on-site support, YLUK has steadily built expertise within the solar industry over the last two years. More recently, the Company has experienced a significant ramp up in business as a result of increased customer demand.

YLUK’s success can be attributed to its extensive service portfolio, which has been specifically tailored to support the unique requirements of the solar supply chain. Solar farms are often situated in sites with limited access and of varying topographies, so YLUK provides advance site assessments to ensure delivery routes are adequate and optimised. Services also include real-time tracking to mitigate potential risks which may impact delivery times.

Pete Bagnall, Senior Operations Manager for YLUK’s International Freight forwarding Division, says “We are a customer focused business and our services appeal directly to the needs of our renewable energy clients. The team offer close consultation throughout and ensure each project delivers a tailored and time-bound solution within budget. It is this attention to quality that is attracting wider interest for Yusen from the renewable energy sector and we look forward to its continued growth.”

As YLUK continues to grow its services within the solar sector the Company will also be concentrating on supporting wider renewable energy projects offering customers the benefit of its global supply chain network, expert logistics knowledge and customer-centric approach.
