Yusen Logistics Russia Introduces New Customs Clearance Services
The Russian government has certified Yusen Logistics Russia (YLRU) as an official Federal Customs license holder.
As a result, the company has introduced enhanced customs clearance capabilities in St. Petersburg, Novorossiysk, Vladivostok and Nakhodka, and Moscow enable the company to “offer customers total end-to-end logistics solutions within the region.”
The new services include full customs inspection and clearance of all cargo types delivered by road and air; the preparation of the required documentation for import or export customs declarations; the preparation of appropriate documents such as TIR Carnets; and customer support with fees, duties and VAT, non-tariff regulations, certificates, permits, and notifications.
“As part of the new service, YLRU will be supporting customs clearance activity at an early stage in the process, managing the necessary documentation to enable completion of customs clearance at short notice, enhancing flows through the international supply chain,” said Dennis Pastukhov, Commercial Director, Yusen Logistics Russia.
“Such a step forward will allow us not only to concentrate responsibility in one hand, but also to provide a competitive service. This will reduce costs for our customers in these difficult economic times.”
Tokyo-based Yusen Logistics, YLRU’s parent, provides contract logistics, air and ocean freight forwarding, warehousing, distribution, freight forwarding and supply chain management services in 40 counties with regional headquarters managing its operations in the Americas, Europe, East Asia and South Asia, and Oceania.
