Yusen Logistics launches Automotive Centre at Tamworth

Yusen Logistics announces the launch of a specialist automotive operation at its Tamworth facility. Adjacent to the M42, the 81,000 sq ft site is strategically located to serve major automotive manufacturers with assembly facilities in the Midlands

The concept for the new operation has been developed further to requests from first and second tier suppliers for decanting, crossdocking, stockholding and sequencing operations in readiness for line-feed into the assembly process on a just-in-time basis.

Regional General Manager, Ian Holland, comments:

“The automotive business is dependant upon maintaining flows at all times, speeding components and sub-assemblies through lengthy international supply chains, whilst minimising inventory and cost.

“We are offering our customers a facility at which stock can be held locally to the manufacturing plant, enabling the automotive manufacturers to minimise any stock held at plant.

“In recent times, we have seen automotive supply chains tested to the limit, particularly in the light of last year’s natural disasters, and this new operation is all about robustness and removal of risk from the automotive supply chain. This is particularly relevant now, with the uplift in manufacturing volumes that we are currently seeing.”

Services on offer at the Tamworth facility include:

• Storage

• Inventory management

• Decanting

• Sequencing

• Labelling

• Cross docking

• Inbound and outbound transport services

• Stock control

• EDI interfaces with suppliers/OEM’s

• ASN creation

• Sub assembly/kitting options

• QA inspection/Rework

• PKMS WMS systems

The Tamworth operation has been set up further to the success of Yusen Logistics’ specialist automotive operation at Burnaston, near Derby
