In Japan, we have deployed branch operations in Tohoku, Kanto-Koshinetsu, Tokai, Hokuriku, Kinki, Chugoku, and northern Kyushu regions. We have a total of 1,300 employees, 480 vehicles, 34 warehouses (96,000 square meters), and a domestic logistics network of 52 branches to provide our valued customers with optimal logistics services.

We have established the region’s largest and state-of-art logistics warehouses in Vietnam and Myanmar which we find proudly, and we are taking on the challenge of exploring new areas with the dream of establishing a cutting-edge, state-of-the-art cold chain logistics network in the ASEAN region.
