White Logistics Reduces Transportation Time by One Day

Realization of White Logistics by Establishment of Hokkaido Center

We established a new Hokkaido base for a customer who handles goods at two bases in the Eastern and Western regions of Japan. By delivering from the Hokkaido base, transport time has been reduced by one day compared to that from the Kanto region. As a result, the tight schedule of having the consignment company pick up the shipment received in the morning on the same day at noon, but we were able to change the schedule to pick it up the next day.

This has enabled us to contact the consignment company well in advance and to reduce long-distance transportation between bases, thereby realizing white logistics and contributing to our customers' BCP*1 measures.


*1 BCP (Business Continuity Plan) is a plan to minimize damage to business assets and enable the continuation or early recovery of core business operations in an emergency situation such as a natural disaster
