Tesco honours Yusen

Retail supply chain expert, Yusen Logistics has received a prestigious award from Tesco for its work with the retailer in the key areas of promotions and range building.

The award recognises the quality of Yusen Logistics’ Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) Vendor Managed Inventory solution which involves over 1,400 product lines, including Health & Beauty, Dry Grocery and Wine, as well as Tesco Own Brands. The operation is based at Yusen Logistics Czech’s 23,000 sqm strategic distribution centre in Strančice (near Prague), which is providing storage and value added services to 75 Tesco suppliers from around the globe, as well as to Tesco itself.

This highly complex operation requires the weekly rotation of up to 100 trailer loads, with the majority of dispatched goods picked at case level. Individual consumer units are labelled, repacked and palletized and then delivered to all of Tesco’s National Distribution Centres across CEE, with optimised trailer load fill. The operation also supports the introduction of new ranges, for both long term and seasonal projects, where it is essential to deliver multiple projects simultaneously within very tight deadlines. 

John Steventon, Head of Tesco Primary CEE commented:

“This award is in recognition of the great job the team at Yusen Logistics have done, showing  responsiveness, flexibility and overall doing a good job to label, tax strip and despatch everything we needed for Christmas, ensuring availability for our customers.”

Accepting the award on behalf of Yusen Logistics, Jan Lonek, Business Development Manager, responsible for the CEE Retail Vertical at Yusen Logistics Czech, commented:

“We are absolutely delighted to receive this award as recognition of our services for Tesco. We will continue with our dedication and commitment to continuous improvement. ”
