Shanghai NYK-ANJI Logistics Begins Operations
Shanghai NYK-ANJI Logistics - a joint venture operated by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), Yusen Logistics and ANJI Automotive Logistics (ANJI) - has begun service under a new name.
NYK and Yusen Logistics will use this collaboration to begin efforts to expand their supply chain logistics, particularly in the areas of auto parts logistics and finished car logistics.
Until recently, the company had been known as NYKANJI Car Transportation Co. Ltd., a joint venture founded in 2004 by ANJI (51%) and NYK (49%).
Over the past decade, NYKANJI Car Transportation Co. Ltd. had offered land transportation for finished cars in China, especially for the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (Group), to which ANJI belongs, and a number of other automobile manufacturers.
To continue its sustainable development, the company’s name was changed to Shanghai NYK-ANJI Logistics Co. Ltd. after Yusen Logistics, a core logistics company of the NYK Group, purchased 20 percent of NYK’s share.
NYK has expertise in finished car logistics. In fact, NYK operates the world's largest car carrier fleet, and Yusen Logistics offers an ocean/air freight forwarding network and contract logistics service that makes good use of the company’s global networks. ANJI has a strong presence in the warehouse and transportation business for China’s automotive industry.
The three companies will combine their technology and expertise, and offer a high-quality integrated automotive logistics service that covers overseas parts procurement, finished car transportation, and the transportation of aftermarket parts that fully meets the various needs of customers.
