New partnership tackles long-distance transport challenges

TOKYOMay 10 (News On Japan) – In response to the urgent problem of labor shortages in the logistics industry, Japan Post and Seino Transportation have announced the start of joint transportation for long-distance routes.

The partnership will see both companies’ goods transported on the same trucks between major logistics hubs, including routes such as Tokyo to Nagoya.

The partnership has already been tested and aims to expand nationwide by April next year to improve efficiency.

Seino Transportation President, Takahashi Satoshi: “The 2024 problem, labor shortages and environmental impacts pose significant challenges to the logistics industry. It is crucial to strive not only individually, but also to transcend business barriers and to work together creatively.”

With truck driver overtime rules tightened last month and ongoing labor shortages, both companies are now inviting other logistics companies to join this joint transportation effort.
