Yusen Logistics UK Expands Time Critical Services for Aerospace Customers

Yusen Logistics UK has expanded its ‘Priority Services Desk’, a dedicated air freight forwarding service which offers aerospace customers prioritised support for last minute, time critical and project cargo deliveries.

The Priority Services Desk has grown and developed in line with the unique requirements and fast-paced nature of the aerospace industry, offering rapid response and ‘around the clock’ support all year round. Its expansion responds to growing customer demands, as aerospace vendors, OEM’s, airlines and operators call for more personalised and added-value supply chain support.


The service has been well received by customers who have benefited from the Desk’s rapid response solutions, including (but not limited to) Next Flight Out, Hand Carry and Charter arrangements.

We always look to deliver no matter how challenging the circumstances may be and we have a range of solutions to surpass expectations. This is what our Services Desk is all about.”
