I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the stakeholders for continued support and understanding.

Under the corporate philosophy “to deliver high-quality services that will help make the world a better place for people and nature for generations to come,” the Hitachi Transport System Group aims to become the most preferred solution provider for all of our stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, and employees, in the sophisticated, diversified and wide-ranging global supply chain, and strives to achieve sustainable growth by solving issues and creating “values” through various “collaborative innovation.”

In the global economy, there is an increasing concern over a shift from the current policy to promote free trade to protectionism/block economies, and Japanese companies are also showing signs of future strategy shift. In the Japanese economy, the business environment, especially for logistics industry, is becoming severe as changes in consumption behavior represented by expanding EC market in addition to continuing concerns over labor shortage led to increasing needs for high-frequency, high-mix, small-lot delivery and the resulting cost increase to secure labor force to handle such delivery. Under these circumstances, the Group will strive to achieve the targets during the year ending March 31, 2018 which is the second year of the Mid-term Management Plan.

Under the Mid-term Management Plan, based on the basic strategy for our core businesses to “Drive thorough enhancement of 3PL business and increase market share,” “Expand forwarding business” and “Enhance Heavy Machinery and Plant Logistics,” we strive to create “values” by invigorating “collaborative innovation” with our customers and business partners and also to improve the Group's corporate value by enhancing our “earning capability” and “growing power” as well as “sustainable capability” these abilities.

We look forward to your continued support.

Yasuo Nakatani
