AS9120 Overview

AS9100 is a quality management system standard for the aerospace industry. Based on ISO9001, AS9100 features additional requirements specific for the aerospace industry. Nippon Express obtained the AS9120 certification, a certificate in the AS9100 series awarded to logistics companies, pass-through distributors, trading companies and other non-manufacturing entities serving the aerospace industry supply chain.
AS9120-certifed distributors earn the privilege of accessing businesses on the global OASIS Database (Online Aerospace Supplier Information System) run by the International Aerospace Quality Group.

Nippon Express Activities

In September 2011, Nippon Express became the first Japanese forwarder to acquire AS9120 certification. This same certification was obtained in November of that year by seven business locations of Nippon Express USA, an overseas subsidiary of Nippon Express, and subsequently by locations in the Chubu area, an important hub for Japan’s aerospace industry, and in France (Nippon Express France). In February 2017, a Nippon Express location at Narita, the key airport for the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, was also certified.
We will continue striving to develop supply chains for our many customers in the aerospace industry.
