Value centers in the producing countries
We set up a value center in the overseas producing country from which the customer purchases the products. The center has functions including storage, buyer’s consolidation, sorting/shipping to individual delivery destination, and value added service. It increases the efficiency of the entire supply chain by building the supply system according to the customer’s demands, standardizing inventories and reducing procurement costs.Click here to view case studies

Supply chain information visualization system
The most burdensome tasks in the trading process are to organize the information on production, shipment, and transport, which are accumulated by the correspondence among suppliers and forwarding vendors, and to manage the status of such information. It takes time and manpower to check the production progress and shipment schedule, keep track of unclear vessel schedule, and organize paper documents that include invoices and B/Ls being received one by one.
We assist the customer’s supply chain management through the information visualization system M-LINK which enables the centralization of merchandise flow, shipping information, and related documents.

Procurement Planning System
When an existing operational infrastructure cannot keep up with the changes in the business environment and a planning operation depends on particular intuitions and experiences of individuals, the business might face some problems in actual operations, such as excess stock, discard, discount sales, stockout, unscheduled transfer, and inefficient transport.
With our Procurement Planning System, we make and provide the optimal order/supply plans using the customer’s demand forecast and past results data.
- Visualize logistics information and enhance the inventory management capability
- Review the commercial distribution to optimize the ordering quantity and reduce the procurement cost
- Standardize and streamline the procurement operations, such as ordering and supplying of products, which depend on particular individuals
- Review man-hours for order management and inventory management, as they are performed manually using legacy tools like Excel
- Review the procurement scheme because of excess stock and shortage of space in the domestic distribution center
- Reduce unnecessary cost for transfer between the proprietary distribution center and another center or external warehouses
- Domestic Logistics Service
With the recent trend of rising logistics cost, we are facing more and more demands for “optimization.”
We are determined to provide each customer with proposals to solve their issues by building streamlined logistics systems based on a dominant strategy and commonization.
The current demands for e-Commerce are good opportunities for customers to expand their businesses. However, in order to capitalize on these opportunities, customers are required to create an e-Commerce facility, including computing and operational systems.
We will contribute to the business expansion of customers by assisting them to create their optimized e-Commerce facility based on our acquired expertise from past projects.
