Yusen Logistics has received an award for Exceptional Contribution at Honda’s UK manufacturing 2013 supplier convention.

The award recognises Yusen’s delivery of continued cost savings, high service levels in meeting operational abnormality management and development of best in class IT systems.

Yusen’s business unit director, John Pursey, said: “This formal recognition is a credit to our fantastic teams in exceeding customer expectations and evidence of continued flexibility and commitment every day.”

A representative from Honda commented: “Over previous years Yusen have been instrumental in delivering an industry-leading inbound logistics solution - delivering operational spend savings by embracing a Kaizen partnership and minimising HUM exposure to high fleet costs and delays within the operation.

Also within the year, Yusen’s instrumental lead in IT development resulted in both companies jointly winning the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards’ Innovation in Use of Technology category, as well as the Automotive Global Supply Chain Awards’ trophy for IT Innovation in Frankfurt.“
