AMSTERDAM: August 03, 2018. Yusen Logistic's UK division has acquired e-commerce delivery and fulfilment specialist ILG, with anticipation that the deal will lead to a 12 percent bump in revenues for the operator. 

Yusen buyEstablished in 1990, ILG is a fast-growing market leader in e-commerce warehousing, fulfilment and delivery with an added specific expertise in the fashion and beauty verticals. ILG’s commitment to delivering the highest standards of service has led to significant growth over the last decade; quadrupling its facilities, which now offer over 175,000 square feet of warehousing, with over 220 employees serving more than 700 clients worldwide.

Yusen’s expansion into the UK’s fastest growing sector (e-commerce) is a direct response to changing market behaviour. the company provides end-to-end international supply chain services which will now give ILG and its customers additional expertise in customs brokerage, cross-border logistics, and access to a further 82 locations with 7 million square feet of warehousing across Europe.

This strategic alliance connects Yusen’s services with ILG’s specialist knowledge, people and infrastructure to deliver full end-to-end B2B and B2C supply chain solutions to an industry high standard.

Andy Fitt, Managing Director of Yusen in Britain commented: “This acquisition reinforces our commitment to continued investment in the UK and we’re delighted to be joining forces with ILG. Our businesses complement each other perfectly and together we bring a new and compelling proposition to the market.”

Going forward, our customers will see new, enhanced services as well as the familiar high standards of care they’ve come to expect from us.”
