Logistics Industry

International logistics business

Our international logistics business goes back to 1948, when we obtained a qualification to act as an agency for airlines and started handling air cargo.
In 1957, a joint investment enabled us to launch a mixed cargo service for freight from Japan destined for overseas. In 1971, we opened up our first ever overseas office in the U.S., marking the beginning of our global expansion.
On November 19, 2014, we received approval from Tokyo Customs as an Authorized Logistics Operator under the AEO system. The AEO system grants approval to operators who have put in place security management and legal compliance systems for handling cargo. Operators approved by the customs director benefit from relaxed and simplified customs procedures.
We received approval as an Authorized Warehouse Operator in January 2009, and as an Authorized Customs Broker in February 2011, meaning that we have now obtained approval in all three systems for logistics operators within the AEO system. We are the fourth company in Japan to obtain approval in all three systems, and the first major forwarder to do so.

Overseas offices (as of July 1, 2016) 98 cities in 25 countries/regions
