Yoshikazu Inose, President
Hiroya Inose started picking up and transporting raw milk from dairy farmers using three motor tricycles in Kumagaya immediately after the end of World War II, an enterprise that marked the start of Inose Logistics. For more than a half century, Inose Logistics has been delivering food in and around the Kanto Region with a focus on Saitama. In the transportation service industry, where competition is particularly fierce, we continue to thrive with the support of our valued customers, business partners, our employees, and our friends in the community.
Looking to the future, we renew our comittment to business expansion with the goal of becoming even more effective at meeting the challenges of an ever-changing logistics environment by fully leveraging experience, achievements, and know-how accumulated over the years. We also continue to prioritize food safety through our ongoing comittment to improving both process and product quality to ensure that highest level of customer satisfaction and peace of mind. We do not just deliver products. We deliver quality by giving the utmost care to ensuring the best conditions for each and every customer's needs. Since assuming the position of president, I have carried forward "the delivery of quality" as a guiding corporate principles. This principle has formed the basis of customer service throughout our history, and is uppermost in every employee's daily effort. We will continue to prioritize customer- and safety-first services and bottom-up approaches at work sites. I am confident that we will continue to build trust and satisfaction with all the individuals and organizations we encounter through our business activities. I look forward to your continuing support and cooperation.
Since our foundation, our business has focused on food transportation. We handle products requiring transport at different temperatures (frozen, chilled, and room temperature) for delivery in the Kanto Region. Our freezer unit vehicles are equipped feature two temperature zones (double-layered type) to ensure the appropriate temeprature for individual products.
Throughout our delivery networks, we prioritize customer satisfaction and trust with cheerful service, best-time delivery, and close contact with customers. For delivery between centers and to markets, our professional drivers ensure strict compliance with the rules of each center.
We provide smooth logistics through a full range of services, from inventory management at individual logistics centers to transport, based on our three basic delivery systems: individual delivery, joint delivery, and 3rd-party logistics (3PL). This broad service system satisfies customer needs while ensuring outstanding quality and cost performance.
With consumers demanding low prices at the point of sale, we consdider the reduction of logistics costs to be a key factor in helping our customers keep their costs down. To this end we strive to increase efficiency through the unified management of equipment and serivces.
We fully leverage our network 24 hours a day, every day of the year by employing logistics bases in the best locations for access to the Tokyo metropolitan district.
Our system takes full advantage of four bases in Saitama Prefecture for efficient food logistics that correspond to three temperature zones: dry, chilled, and frozen. These are the outstanding features of our system.
Our joint delivery service ensures the most effective handling of dry and chilled products. Through this service, we deliver products from multiple customers through transport categorized by product feature and destination.
Employing a cross-docking process we unify product information to achieve efficient, high-quality, and low-cost delivery. Our joint delivery service was developed to prioritize cost reduction and care for the social environment.
We share bases with other logistics service providers to unify same-route delivery for maximum efficiency. This system not only realizes significant cost reduction, but also provides a wide range of advantages to our customers.
Alcohol 41%, Rice 27%, Pharmaceutical products 23%, Instant food 5%, and Other 4%. Our customers enjoy next-day delivery.
