Global freight forwarder Yusen Logistics has expanded its services from Asia with the launch of its first weekly direct less-than-container-load (LCL) service from Malaysia to Los Angeles and Oakland.

The service is run together with TASCO, an NYK Group affiliate based in Malaysia that runs a comprehensive distribution and consolidation network across the country.

In Los Angeles, cargo is deconsolidated at Yusen Logistics’ own facility for sorting and distribution throughout the U.S.

The weekly service sails from Port Klang every Tuesday, calls in Yantian, and arrives in Los Angeles 19 days later, saving about 10 days over traditional multicountry consolidation services from Malaysia.

Japan-based Yusen Logistics also operates an LCL network departing from multiple trans-Atlantic origin countries, including Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and China.

“We are seeing increasing demand for smart LCL services from Asia into the US and our new direct Malaysia LCL service is one element of our response to this,” said Joseph Goldman, Yusen Logistics’ director of operations for the international division.
