Business Description

Delivery Business

Delivering products across the full temperature range (frozen, chilled, and room temeprature) in the Kato Region.

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.

High-quality transport by driving professionals


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.

Logistics Center Business

Improving efficiency through unified logistics

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.

Reducing costs

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.

Logistics system corresponding to three temperature zones

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.

Joint Delivery Business

Cost-performance through joint delivery service

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.

Low-cost, highly efficient joint delivery

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.

Advantages of joint delivery

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.
