Nippon Express establishes "GLOBAL LOGISTICS INNOVATION CENTRE" in Singapore to cater to Non-Japanese global companies

December 6, 2016

Nippon Express (South Asia & Oceania) Pte. Ltd. (President: Yasunori Takahashi), a subsidiary company of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (President: Kenji Watanabe), has established a new specialized unit, Global Logistics Innovation Centre (GLIC) on the same premises. The dynamic new unit has already commenced business and aims to conduct market research and business development geared towards winning global non-Japanese business.

In recent years, numerous global non-Japanese companies are intensifying the authority of their regional headquarters, leading to an increased necessity for the approach of catering not only towards the corporate headquarters but also towards the regional headquarters to fully understand customer needs. GLIC will seek out new business opportunities, analyze the clients' business scope, investigate and develop logistics systems; all with an aim to strengthening the sales strategy.

Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board, GLIC seeks to maximize the in-depth experience, top-level achievements and unparalleled quality that we have attained overseas thus far, and further intensify our sales expansion tailored for non-Japanese companies as listed in the latest Nippon Express Group Corporate Strategy.

(Business Scope)

  • Market research and analysis of logistics needs relating to non-Japanese global businesses
  • Research and Development of the next-generation logistics system based on client analysis and its proposal to clients
  • Other duties relating to the above
