Launching New Service “Mekong Land Wing” Speedy, High-Quality Overland Transportation Service Between Hanoi and Bangkok

Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd. (President: Shunichi Yano) has launched an overland transportation service called "Mekong Land Wing" along the East-West Economic Corridor that links Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam.

The company has launched Mekong Land Wing, a new overland transportation service for the speedy distribution of goods between Hanoi and Bangkok by utilizing the East-West Economic Corridor that links Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. The employment of unique "through containers" eliminates the trans-shipping of cargo that is normally required at national borders, making high transportation quality and reduced lead time a reality.
This will be a high utility value service as an alternative or supplementary service to that of air or marine transportation.

Through the integration with the overseas logistics business of Nippon Yusen, Yusen Logistics now offers a more extensive array of services, and this new service will further enhance its level of service to respond to the increasingly sophisticated and diverse needs of its customers as the world’s leading provider of total logistics.
