Yusen Logistics expands global project cargo network to Brazil

Yusen Logistics’ subsidiary, Yusen Logistics Do Brasil Ltda., announced that it has established a dedicated project cargo team in Brazil. The team, based in São Paulo, is expected to support the company’s overall project network and develop its services for this business segment in Brazil.

Yusen Logistics’ project cargo team will manage existing manufacturing customers in Brazil, as well as new clients in the region.

“The focus on the Brazil market comes at exactly the right time to match the increase in demand for these services,” said Marcos Pultrini, Project Team Leader, Brazil. “While we have provided project to support in the past, the formation of this team as part of our global project network is real advantage to our customers in this market.”

The team will provide global project consultation, planning, and implementation, across all modes of transport. Its service portfolio is ready to support break-bulk, over-dimension heavy machinery, equipment, and ocean services such as Ro-Ro, heavy lift, flat rack, open top out of gauge and chartering. Although covering all industries, the growth of segments such as industrial goods, energy, and general machinery have helped spur this development.

“In many cases, it is more cost effective to import heavy equipment and machinery from the US, Europe and China, then it is to build these same parts in Brazil,” said Pultrini. “We expect to see much growth in this area.”
