Taoyuan City is home to Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan's air transport gateway, as well as numerous manufacturing companies. Situated near the Greater Taipei Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Taiwan, and enjoying good access to Taipei Port and Keelung Port, Taoyuan sees relatively few natural disasters and has a steadily growing population, making it a suitable location for a logistics hub.

The newly established NEXT3 Warehouse takes advantage of its proximity to large urban areas to handle retail and EC-related products, and integrated operation with the adjacent NEXT2 Warehouse, which has a bonded area, makes it possible to flexibly store both bonded and non-bonded cargo. A storage/work area compliant with GDP/GMP standards for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and cosmetics has also been set up, and an application for certification by the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) is currently being processed. The warehouse will be providing high-quality storage and distribution processing services through proper product management.

NE Taiwan will be adding to its international transport services utilizing the Nippon Express Group's global network by further expanding its logistics functions across Taiwan to help customers develop their business activities.
