Nippon Express begins full-scale operations at new logistics base in inland Wuhan

-- Aims to bolster domestic transport of consumer goods in China --

Nippon Express Logistics (China) Co., Ltd. (Hanjian Wang, President; hereinafter, "NE Logistics China"), a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President), has set up a new business location in Wuhan (Hubei Province, China) to provide domestic logistics for apparel, and full-scale operations were launched there in November.

The purchasing power of inland China has risen as China's economy has developed, and the distribution volume of apparel and other consumer goods has increased substantially. Centrally located vis-a-vis China's other major cities, Wuhan has seen its geographical importance rise as a strategic base for inland traffic.

NE Logistics China has established a new location in Wuhan that began operations using highly-trained staff dispatched from another business location in coastal Dongguan (Guangdong Province) handling the same types of apparel to maintain a high level of quality.

To further enhance services and better meet the needs of its customers, the company will be developing a domestic trucking network and a route distribution network for stores in China centered on this location in the Wuhan area to handle daily necessities, apparel and other consumer goods.
