In 2012, we were launched through the consolidation of three entities—Hitachi
Transport System, and Vantec’s Forwarding Division, and the HTS Sea & Air Company—as a
company in charge of the forwarding business the Hitachi Transport System Group.
Hitachi Transport System, a top Japanese 3PL services provider with strengths in the
heavy transport ; Vantec, a company
with a competitive edge in logistics for automotive parts; and HTS Sea & Air, a company
whose strengths were applied to
operations at ports and in airports, each possesses more than half a century of history and
experience. Armed with the strengths of these three companies, we can safely and securely
deliver heavy plant equipment, industrial machinery, automotive parts, pharmaceuticals,
apparel, fresh food, daily necessities, and many other items anywhere in the world via
optimal modes of transport in each case by leveraging the Hitachi Transport System Group’s
global network of over 700 locations.
In addition, with supply chains expanding globally and EPAs and other complex
multilateral agreements being concluded on
an often overlapping basis, highly specialized know-how for moving goods across borders is
needed and solutions that are
ideal can be promptly provided to allay the concerns of our clients. As a member of the
Hitachi Transport System Group, we will contribute extensively to society by supporting the
business activities of our clients through our forwarding business in an effort to remain
faithful to Basics and Ethics.
