Casio UK has renewed its total UK supply chain operation with Yusen Logistics. Yusen Logistics partnership with Casio spans over 25 years and this renewal will see both organisations extend the partnership to over 30 years.
Yusen Logistics handles Casio’s full range of products destined for both the consumer and business markets, which includes digital pianos, cash registers, watches, calculators and digital projectors.
Key to the operation’s continued success is Yusen’s expertise in added value services which include managing seasonal peaks such as Casio’s “back to school” campaign, with an increased requirement for labelling, bundling and preparation for presentation for retailers. The Casio operation also includes inbound container planning, customs clearance and delivery from port and warehousing based at one of Yusen Logistics’ high security distribution centres in the UK.
Jason Tipple, Contract Manager at Yusen Logistics commented: “The strength and longevity of the relationship between Casio and Yusen is a testament to 25 years working together on continuous improvement, managing costs and reacting to the changing needs of the business. Our business relationship is a true partnership which Yusen are extremely proud to be a part of as Casio grow their UK business over the next 5 years.”
“Richard Sharpe Operations Manager at Casio UK stated “It is fantastic news that both Casio and Yusen can continue our journey together. For the past 25 years, our partnership has gone from strength to strength developing new ways to work, and I have absolute confidence in this continuing, as Casio look to take advantage of the new opportunities that are on the horizon.”
