The Nippon Express Group is pleased to announce that it will be transitioning to a holding company structure in January 2022 and making a new start as Nippon Express Holdings, Inc.

The environment surrounding the logistics industry worldwide continues to be severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, creating instability and increasingly unpredictable conditions, even as the industry also faces pressing needs to mount potent global responses to the Sustainable Development Goals, digital transformation and a steadily growing list of other critical challenges.

Against this formidable backdrop, Nippon Express is determined to redouble its efforts to realize the long-term vision set forth in its current business plan of becoming “a logistics company with a strong presence in the global market.” Toward that end, we are restructuring our management system to achieve even speedier decision-making and maximize our value as a corporate group.

In conjunction with this transition, we will also be introducing NX as our new group brand, likewise changing our corporate group name Nippon Express Group to NX Group. Since its inception in 1937, the group has grown its business internationally from Japan and has striven through logistics to connect people, companies and regions and thereby contribute to the advancement of society. Under this new brand, we will be marshaling our group-wide strength to evolve into an even more powerful corporate entity while generating new value from the logistics domain.

The NX Group will continue keenly endeavoring from a long-term perspective to implement sustainable management and to shine as an even more trusted corporate presence in the eyes of its customers and society in the years to come. This will be accompanied by the dynamic pooling of our group’s strengths to create further growth and greater corporate value.

As we undertake this transformation, we look forward to your continued and invaluable understanding, support and guidance in helping us attain our objectives.

January 2022
President & CEO Mitsuru Saito
