With Local Communities

The HTS Group aims to be a good corporate citizen by supporting various activities in such fields as "traffic and road safety", "training a new generation of people", "innovation", "environmental protection," and "contribution of local communities" both in Japan and overseas under the basic principle of "Objectives of Social Contribution Activities."

Activity of a group company in Turkey

Turkey, Traffic and Road Safety Class
Approximately 1,000 children participated

In May 2019, Mars Logistics Group Inc., our Turkish group company, held a traffic and road safety class. In the class, we used the rear deck of the truck as a classroom, prepared creative learning tools such as quizzes using a tablet terminal and a worksheet on which children can put stickers on so that children can develop a better understanding about road signs while having fun.

Donation for traffic and road safety

We have been donating to the Traffic Accident Orphans Association (public interest incorporated foundation ("Daddy Long Legs"). The Traffic Accident Orphans Association was established for the purpose of lending tuition fees to children whose parents have died or suffered a severe disability due to a traffic accident and who have difficulty as a result in studying financially, in attempting to equalize educational opportunities and develop human resources that are of use to society.
