Combining the strengths of Taylored fulfillment centers in U.S. port-centric gateway markets with Yusen Logistics' global and domestic capabilities in international freight forwarding, warehousing and transloading operations, and supply chain orchestration will allow us to provide a full suite of supply chain logistics solutions to our current and future customers."

Taylored employees and customers will benefit from access to Yusen’s extensive global network and supply chain solutions including international air and ocean freight forwarding and 4PL/Lead Logistics capabilities," said Jim DeVeau, ex-President & CEO of Taylored Services.
