The insurgence of a new customer experience is shifting every avenue of the retail journey. The growth of the holistic omnichannel approach means ecommerce and bricks and mortar retail are more fused than ever before. Dynamic new logistics models focus on delivering a seamless and integrated service in the customer's buying journey, whether using a device on the go, at home or by walking into a store.

For the first time ever, mobile devices are leading the way in UK online retail sales too, further cementing the leap towards ecommerce demand for shoppers.

Adding value to your high value cargo

If a customer pays a premium price for a premium product – anything from the latest games console or mobile phone to a designer handbag or top-of-the-range fridge freezer – they naturally expect the very best: a quality product, delivered on time, in prime condition, no excuses. If they decide your product isn’t quite right for them – or they’ve ordered the wrong model, colour or size – they also expect a quick and hassle-free returns or exchange process. In short, if you’re dealing in valuable goods, every aspect of the high value goods supply chain needs to run like clockwork to ensure customers are happy and your reputation for excellence remains intact.

To enable you to meet your customers’ high expectations, outsourcing your warehousing and distribution services to an experienced third-party logistics (3PL) for high value goods like Yusen Logistics can pay huge dividends. Our networks, infrastructure, experience and supply chain management expertise will protect and enhance your high value cargo and add substantial value to your operations.
