Yusen Logistics (UK) Ltd has replaced its UK wide IT networking infrastructure. The company believes the move will improve its flexibility and increase efficiency.
“The new network will improve our IT capabilities” says Simon Calver, Yusen Logistics (UK) Networks Technical Lead. “It will make it easier to share information with our clients in real time and for us to add new distribution sites.”
IT specialists Abtec Network Systems provided the new network. Phil Kennerdell, Abtec’s Sales Director, points out, “We’ve used our own national network which gives Yusen Logistics faster connection speeds and improved resilience.”
The network connects Yusen’s distribution, administration and datacentres together. A diverse range of applications run across the network, including its warehousing supply chain software and vehicle tracking data. “It supports our focus on delivering customer centric services for our clients” adds Simon.
As the logistics firm’s reliance on IT continues to grow, safeguarding this infrastructure was an important network design consideration. Phil notes “We’ve built additional resilience into the network to ensure that Yusen can still operate even in the highly unlikely event that disaster strikes.”
The network extends Abtec’s growth in the logistics market. Its clients include Norbert Dentressangle, the Road Haulage Association and Panic Transport. Phil explains the reasons for this growth, “Our understanding of the needs of businesses in this sector help us create unique services for logistics firms. These services help businesses exceed their clients’ needs and can cut costs too.”
