Message from Management

President and CEO Hiromasa Aya

Our Group's Vision is "We are an integrated logistics and information company whose core-business is the low-temperature zone shipping and storage of food products in the globally developing market."
And one of the efforts to achieve this is "We will fulfill our corporate social responsibilities and become a logistics company supported by all stakeholders."

Corporate social responsibilities are to continue to increase corporate value through continuous growth, comply with compliance, and address social issues through business.

In the low-temperature food logistics network, we are closely connected with many stakeholders (raw material procurers, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers) to form a high-quality supply chain. In order to resolve social issues, we need to listen to all stakeholders, think about what we can do, and implement it quickly.

Recently, there has been a growing interest in environmental issues such as climate change and human rights issues in the value chain, and consumers tend to consume products that take these into account. Therefore, new measures are required, such as displaying total CO2 emissions.

In such a business environment, we recognized that sustainability-related initiatives are an important management issue. We formulated the Sustainability Policy and established a system that enables the Board of Directors to fully engage in sustainable management. We also identified five issues (materiality) that are important to both our business and stakeholders. By focusing on materiality, we will contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In order to continue to be the company of choice for the next generation, we will work to resolve important issues and strive to increase corporate value.
