Nippon Express (Australia) Pty. Ltd. (Yoshihisa Kageyama, President; hereinafter, "NE Australia"), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has relocated and expanded one of its facilities in Melbourne, Victoria, relaunching operations at the new location on Wednesday, July 1.

Situated in southeastern Australia, the State of Victoria has a robust manufacturing and IT/software industrial base, and it drives Australian industry in life science sectors such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Major Japanese automobile manufacturers have opted to set up operations in the state capital of Melbourne, which has consequently attracted numerous associated suppliers.

In addition to being close to the city of Melbourne, the Centre is about 20 minutes from Melbourne International Airport and about 15 minutes from Melbourne Port, making it an excellent location for handling air and ocean cargo transport.

NE Australia's primary targets in opening this Centre are after-sales automotive part and electrical device companies, and NE Australia is committed to strengthening its logistics functions, and to provide customers with optimal transport services.

Nippon Express remains committed to enhancing its services as a global logistics company to meet the diversifying logistics needs of its customers.
