Making full use of our Group's expertise and global network, we act as a one-stop service provider. We can arrange the optimal mode of transportation, and support you with any other related needs.
From anywhere and to anywhere around the world, we move goods seamlessly and efficiently, with our expertise in high-quality transport services. Our Group's united strength lies in our ability to deliver comprehensive global solutions, through the integration of our 3PL/contract logistics, heavy machinery haulage, and forwarding capabilities.
Along with globalization, our customers are seeing more and more business opportunities through geographical expansion. The Hitachi Transport System Group can meet all your international transportation needs, thanks to our comprehensive worldwide network.
Thanks to our global network, we can provide safe and reliable transportation services between any regions. Our strength lies in our ability to integrate freight forwarding with contract logistics and/or heavy haulage at the cargo's origin or destination area(s). Compared to managing each function with separate providers on your own, it allows for a more stable logistics quality and reduces the complexity of your management or administrative processing tasks.
We meet a wide range of needs related to domestic transportation, packaging, processing, and so on, and also provide first-class forwarding services on a world-wide scale.
Moreover, we can constantly deliver an unmatched level of service value to you through integrating our expertise and capabilities that are proven by our track record in the areas of contract logistics, heavy machinery transportation, and equipment installation.
We take into account the delivery time-frame, budget range, regional characteristics, and the nature of the cargo. Then, selecting the best form of transportation from air, ship, rail, etc., we create an optimal transportation plan to meet your needs.
Taking advantage of our Group's integrated capabilities, we offer a wide variety of forwarding services all over the world. Furthermore, you can track the transportation status of your cargo online, around the clock.
The Hitachi Transport System Group has a vast domestic and global network. Outside of Japan, we have 72 companies in our group, with facilities in 422 locations (as of March, 2021).
Vantec HTS Forwarding, as a company that plays a central role in the our group's forwarding business, provides various international logistics solutions to support customers' global SCM.
Through safety education, which is fundamental to everything we do, and by ensuring we have the latest information on customs clearance practices, laws and regulations, transportation conditions, and so on, we constantly increase the knowledge and skill-levels of our staff, in each and every region. (Our local subsidiaries are able to provide service in the Japanese language if preferable.)
In areas that are not covered by our Group companies, we engage our trusted partners to provide a safe and reliable service just like elsewhere through close cooperation.
No matter the location, we always seek to deliver service of the highest quality.
Both the C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) program of the United States and the AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) programs of each country/region, promote increased security management and compliance standards of cargo in foreign trade.
The HTS Group is committed to providing safe, high-quality transportation services on a global scale. To that end, we have been pushing ahead with acquiring these certifications. To date, one of our group companies in the United States is certified with C-TPAT, and we have AEO-certified entities in Japan, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, and Thailand.
Forwarding does not mean simply transporting items from A to B. In addition to complications that may arise from a variety of administrative procedures, management tasks, office work, and so on, it is essential to undertake appropriate packing for the safe transportation and regulatory compliance of the cargo.
There is a wide variety of challenges that may arise from moving your cargos internationally, and how to handle them may also vary widely.
The Hitachi Transport System Group is able to take care of all your needs, be it product calibration inspections, labelling, or various distribution processing needs, allowing you to focus on your core business.
