Solving various problems related to “Previo,”
a cargo inspection system unique to Mexico,

Mexico has a unique customs clearance system
whereby registered customs clearing agents inspect
the content of all cargo (Previo).
This inspection sometimes damages cargo packaging
and reduces product value. Accordingly, Nippon
Express has become the only foreign company to have
established a highly functional logistics base in the San
Luis Potosí Bonded Zone and deliver customer
products safely and surely by handling and managing
customs clearances, including previo, by itself.

In responding early to the global trend of "China Plus One",
we are meeting needs and looking further into the future.
An era of overconcentration of production
bases in China, which has been called the
“world’s factory” ended and the trend to
shift production bases to ASEAN countries
continues. Nippon Express deploys 233
bases and 970,000 ㎡-warehouses in South
Asia and Oceania regions, centering on a
regional controlling company in Singapore.
We also cover South Asia widely with
services such as “SS7000,” a cross-border
truck transport service connecting the
“Kunming-Bangkok Expressway” and the
“East-West Economic Corridor.”
With through transport without re-shipment between two
countries, we have largely reduced the operational time
required to handle cargo damage and re-shipments.
Transport from Cambodia where economic growth continues, centering on the apparel
industry, to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam that used to center on transport by water, but now has
infrastructure including roads and bridges, improved thanks to Japanese ODA takes only about
eight hours by truck. The biggest challenge to this transport is re-shipment of containers
between trucks from Cambodia and to Vietnam. In response, Nippon Express has achieved
transport without re-shipment, having nine trucks with rights of passage for both countries.

We developed standing equipment to
convey wind generation facilities
near a mountain’s ridge line.
We will meet any needs through
precise transport plans and other measures.
As the needs for special or precision transport are intensifying,
Nippon Express focuses on developing pure transport methods.
From the transport of a giant astrometric telescope to the top of a mountain as much as 4,000
meters high and the construction of an oil liquefaction plant that cannot be disassembled in
the jungle, to the shipment and installation of large precision equipment to a foreign plant,
Nippon Express has challenged a whole series of difficult issues. If there is no road, we make it
and if a port is required, we will also make it. The Nippon Express Group proposes an optimal
solution meeting customers’ needs, such as the transport of not only heavy goods, but also art
pieces and temperature-controlled air freight/maritime shipping with technical capabilities.
The construction of ecological wind generation facilities is
rapidly expanding. Nippon Express has developed unique
standing equipment to convey giant wind turbine blades.
While there are many sites suitable for wind generation in
to 10 meters long cannot be disassembled for reasons of
strength. Therefore it was difficult to construct large wind
generation equipment in mountainous areas after
transporting the blades through winding mountain roads.
Therefore Nippon Express developed “The Blade Tilting
Device*” in 2003, which made it possible to transport very
long blades on a road that would previously have been
impassable by moving them from right to left or up and

To Have Nippon Express Earning Respect in
Society as a Corporate Citizen
We believe that just as individual people have character,
companies also have ‘corporate character’.
We plan to polish our corporate character,
instead of pursuing only business operations,
which are equivalent to the "body" of a company.
In order to gain recognition and be admired as a good corporate citizen by doing so,
we will continue to exert proactive efforts to contribute to society.
Disaster Support Activities
After the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, the Niigata
Chuetsu Offshore Earthquake and the Great East Japan
Earthquake, Nippon Express urgently transported relief
supplies from across the country to affected areas. In
addition, we have supported the delivery of emergency
relief goods to areas affected by Ebola hemorrhagic
fever and the Nepal earthquake with our intermodal
transport system. We will continue to cooperate in
international assistance activities for affected areas and
offer humanitarian support through logistics.
These reports on corporate social
responsibility (CSR) activities conducted by
Nippon Express describe, among other
things, our corporate structure for
promoting CSR activities, speciﬁc activities
and data on actual achievements.
As activities to prevent global warming and
preserve biodiversity, we have set up “Nittsu
no mori” (Nittsu’s forest) at three places across
Japan, namely, Iidemachi, Yamagata
Prefecture, Nichinan-cho, Tottori Prefecture
and Izunokuni City, Shizuoka Prefecture, where
employees and their families are engaged in
activities to grow forests. They engage in
afforestation and underbrush trimming and
also have exchanges with local people.
Traffic Safety Classes
Nippon Express is offering traffic safety
classes to elementary schools and other
educational facilities in local communities
to enhance communication with
communities, traffic safety and employees’
safety awareness. These classes include the
theme “look and experience” to allow
students to learn the importance of traffic
safety more efficiently without being in
Our ﬁve sport clubs, namely a prestigious
corporate baseball club that has produced
many professional players, a Japanese
fencing club, a judo club, a sumo club and a
golf club, all play active roles as competitive
clubs which have achieved good results.
The entire company cheers on these
athletes in their matches.
Nippon Express jointly sponsors children’s
song concerts with the sisters Saori Yuki
and Sachiko Yasuda, cooperating in
bringing beautiful Japanese songs to the
children of the 21st century. The sisters also
visit junior high schools across the nation to
organize concerts in school gymnasiums or
auditoriums in collaboration with students,
teachers and parents.
There are free schools operated by temples
and volunteers for children that can’t afford
to go to a public school in Myanmar. Nippon
Express donated funds for the construction
of a temple school with four classrooms with
an area of 293 ㎡ in Yangon in 2015. 275
students now work hard at the school daily.
We will continue to help develop human
resources and spur on economic growth by
supporting school education and so on.
For tomorrow’s global environment.
Nippon Express continues striving for “earth-friendly logistics”.
The impact of logistics to “convey things”
on the environment is greater than expected.
Nippon Express has an obligation to be the ﬁrst to
take measures against environmental issues as a global company.
We also aim to bequeath a beautiful Earth for the future.
“Modal shift,” an activity equating to a shift to transport means with
lower environmental burden.
“Modal shift” means a shift to transport means with a lower environmental burden. With this in mind, Nippon Express has
signiﬁcantly reduced CO2 emission and costs by shifting means for bulk transport between main cities to railways or marine
vessels. In Japan, we established a consistent system between sending cargo out and back based on needs or schedules,
setting up a counter at container handling stations nationwide. We also developed an international transport product using
the “Eco-liner,” a 31-feet railway container to allow for consistent transport between 10-ton trucks and trains or vessels, using
a container of the same size as the back of the truck.
Promotion of eco-drive in Asia
The CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) is a system to achieve
part of the Japanese reduction goal of CO2 emissions by introducing
and popularizing excellent low carbon technology and other
functions in developing countries.
In 2012, our eco-drive effort in Malaysia was registered to the UN
CDM for the ﬁrst time as a logistics company and the activities are
currently continued in the JCM (Joint Crediting Mechanism, a credit
system between two countries) efforts in Vietnam.
Active introduction of
Nippon Express is actively introducing
environment-friendly vehicles, such as
hybrid vehicles, compressed natural gas
(CNG) vehicles, electric vehicles and
liqueﬁed petroleum gas (LPG) vehicles, to
complement its efforts toward a model shift.
As a solution partner underpinning the
logistics operations of companies, Nippon
Express is striving for environmental
management by pushing for reductions of
CO2 emissions and lower pollution.
Launch of a container-matching center
Marine containers used for exports and imports become a
social problem, as trailers to return or pick up containers have
caused chronic traffic jams in surrounding areas because
they are for one-way use. In addition, the need to operate
containers more efficiently has intensiﬁed, with costs and the
environment in mind. Therefore Nippon Express opened a
container-matching center and set routes to collect and
deliver cargo based on the time of pickup/delivery, the
location conditions and other factors. Consequently, we
allowed the round-trip use of containers by proposing
optimal transport combining various customers.
