   Yusen Logistics Co. Ltd., the third-party logistics provider subsidiary of Japan’s NYK Group, has opened a new 53,820-square-foot logistics center near Celaya, Mexico, in an effort to meet increased demand from domestic and international automotive customers, the company said in a statement.

The company noted there is also room for expansion at the facility, including the capacity to double the amount of warehouse and office space and add a cross-dock facility with 30 dock doors.
   Services offered at the facility, which will employ 100 people initially, include just-in-time scheduling, domestic truck, rail and intermodal transportation, international freight forwarding, import/export services and warehousing.
