NYK integrates logistics in the Americas

by Canadian Shipper

NYK has recently restructured a number of activities and has formally Incorporated NYK Logistics (Americas), Inc.

NYK Logistics (Americas), Inc. integrates all of NYK’s Logistics products in the Americas under one singular performance-based entity.

NYK Logistics (Americas), Inc. includes the assets and capabilities of Orient Consolidation Services (OCS), a leader in customer oriented cargo management services; United Warehouse & Distribution Corporation (UWDC), a leading West Coast provider of quality warehouse and transload services; ETA Transportation of Bentonville, Arkansas, an integrated logistics and U.S.-Mexico cross-border service provider; GST Corporation, one of the leading Intermodal Marketing Companies and Logistics product suppliers in the domestic market; and NSRI, the NYK Group’s internal information resource component. This new structure will interface closely with NYK’s existing Liner organization to provide seamless transportation products.

"NYK is a powerful organization in size, scope and knowledge," said Kinichi Hirayama, Chairman of NYK (North America), Inc. "The formation of NYK Logistics (Americas), Inc will allow us to more effectively serve our clients with the highest quality, fully integrated logistics products and services. In the past many of these products and services were offered but not in the integrated fashion required in the dynamic and challenging marketplace we see today.". Hirayama will also assume the responsibility of CEO of the new entity

"NYK Logistics (Americas), Inc. has the knowledge-based management to create value for our customers through fully integrated high-quality Logistics products designed to fulfill real identified customer needs" noted Saburo Yamagata, a member of the Board of the new entity. Mr. Yamagata went on to say that "By combining our strengths in the Intermodal arena with our proven capabilities in Asia consolidation and cargo management, warehousing and cross-dock operations, cross border and reverse logistics, then adding our transaction and cargo visibility technologies, we know we will continue to be a compelling force in the all-important Logistics market."
