We design and build a logistics service for each customer that optimally matches their logistics strategy.

For the challenges of transforming the various supply chain issues for the customers, we provide the comprehensive logistics solution from planning of the logistics centers (new installation/relocation) through service design (warehouse/management in warehouse/transportation) to the commissioning of operations management, based on our experiences, expertise and network.

Basic Service Approach:

Case study of the Network Reconstruction Method:

  • 1. Selecting the location(s) from an objective viewpoint

    Based on the objective index, we identify and verify the ideal location(s) in additional to the number of locations that are needed for the customer by using our proprietary location calculation software.
    We perform several patterns of simulations based on various conditions in accordance with the customers’ business characteristics to review the transport network and then plan closure/consolidation of locations.

    Example: For the cases of 1 location or 2 locations, we can identify the ideal locations (city/ward/town/village) by performing a simulation.

    • For 1 location

    • For 2 location

  • 2. Improving the transport efficiency

    In addition to vehicle allocation dependent on particular individuals, we have deployed our transport management system with the following functions: (1) auto allocation, (2) transport mode options, and (3) loading rate/fare management. This system helps increase the loading rates, optimize the hours of operation, and reduce the driving distance, which enables us for continuous improvements.

    Example: Vehicles are allocated with the auto-allocation system (see the figure on the right). As a result, there are improvements of loading rates and the reduction of dispatches.

    • Allocation by individuals

    • Allocation by the auto-allocation system

  • 3. Planning the operations in the warehouse

    We assess the bottleneck and issues in the logistics center operation based on the characteristics of the customer’s logistics, such as product portfolio, seasonal fluctuations, inventory turnover, frequency of shipment, storage efficiency, and operational efficiency, and then propose a design and an operation plan for the logistics center that will be excellent in terms of operational efficiency and return on investment.

    • Examples of the Layout Design


  • Evaluate the cost and scheme of the current logistics
  • Convert into variable cost by transferring own logistics operation to 3PL
  • Improve operational productivity transformed by a labor-saving material handling system
  • Install or upgrade WMS (Warehouse Management System) and TMS (Transport Management System)
