YAS opens a representative office in Krakow, Poland

Yusen Air & Sea Service Co., Ltd. will open a representative office in Krakow, South West of the Republic of Poland, as part of an enhancement initiative developed in East Europe. The office will start operations on November 25, 2004. This is the first office in Poland as a Japanese air cargo forwarder.

Poland has shown high growth since the middle of the 1990's as a production center of the European market. Participation in the EU in May 2004, and its abundant work force triggered substantial direct investment in the Southern part of Poland by the Japanese automobile industry and other companies. As a result, an increase in the cargo volume to and from Poland is expected. To strengthen support for customers and local agencies in the country, which has been covered by employees sent from the headquarters on a long-term business trip basis, YAS determined to open an office adjacent to the John Paul II International Airport in Krakow, the third largest city in Poland.
