  • Yusen Logistics recently opened its first refrigerated storage operation in Hong Kong.
  • New Yusen Logistics facility in Hong Kong supports rising demand for food imports from Japan and Europe.
  • Tsuen Wan Logistics Center is located 15 miles from the Hong Kong Airport and 16 feet from the container terminal.

Yusen Logistics (Hong Kong) Limited recently opened a temperature-controlled facility at the Tsuen Wan Logistics Center in Hong Kong. The facility, the company’s first refrigerated storage operation in Hong Kong, will support the rising demand for food imports from 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, said a company statement.

The 183,000 square-foot Tsuen Wan Logistics Center is strategically located 15 miles from the Hong Kong Airport and 16 feet 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 such as sorting and labeling, and packaging and inventory for non-residents. Yusen Logistics takes advantage of its container freight station capabilities as a base for its reefer ocean consolidation service.
