Yusen Logistics Enhances Air Import Capability with New Temperature-controlled Facility in Hong Kong

Yusen Logistics (Hong Kong) Limited opened a temperature-controlled facility at the Tsuen Wan Logistics Center in Hong Kong on March 14. The facility, the company’s first refrigerated storage operation in Hong Kong, will support the rising demand for food imports Japan and Europe, primarily driven by e-commerce.

The facility enhances Yusen Logistics’ air import capability in the region and strengthens its presence in the food industry, one of its key growth segments.

The 17,000-square-meter Tsuen Wan Logistics Center is strategically located 25 kilometers from the Hong Kong Airport and 5 kilometers from the container terminal. The facility had previously provided various types of logistics services for electrical and electronic goods.

The chilled facility provides storage at a temperature range between 2˚C and 5˚C and the frozen facility provides storage between -18˚C and -15˚C. This enables Yusen Logistics to handle a wide range of products, including processed foods, perishable commodities and alcoholic beverages.

In addition to handling refrigerated and frozen goods, the facility also provides storage, entering and dispatching, processing for distribution (sorting and labeling), packaging and inventory for non-residents. Yusen Logistics takes advantage of its CFS (Container Freight Station) capabilities as a base for its reefer ocean consolidation service.
