  • POINT01

    We achieve reliable temperature-controlled transport tailored to the characteristics of various manufactured products/commodities by drawing upon our unique expertise in temperature control and packaging techniques.

  • POINT02

    Your cargo is more secure throughout the entire shipping and distribution process thanks to our tireless work preparing and managing our own Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that conform to Good Distribution Practices (GDPs).

  • POINT03

    Every one of our offices is staffed by experienced specialists delivering customer care with our comprehensive support system.


Transport of medical products and medical device requires strict quality/temperature control and thorough security measures (preventing theft and substitution of counterfeit medications). We allow no compromise when it comes to any step of the supply chain, the time of refrigerated containers and loading on airplanes. Compliance with GDP (enforced in Europe effective September 2013; guidelines for the Japanese version issued in December 2019) is indispensable. Chemical product cargoes require specialized import and export procedures to determine whether they contain substances harmful to humans, plants, animals, or the environment, and whether they should be categorized as hazardous goods.

    Temperature control

    We present reliable solutions for temperature-controlled transport by using warehouses where the temperature can be thoroughly controlled even during vanning operations, and adopting special insulated packaging to ensure optimal temperature control. We can also, of course, install data loggers to record temperate changes in containers and in cargo boxes.
