Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Mitsuru Saito, President) has finished construction of its "NX Group Integrated Locations" (name tentative) in Kanda-Izumicho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, and it marked the occasion with a completion ceremony on Thursday, September 16.
The new integrated locations of Kanda-Izumicho holds a deep and special connection for Nippon Express, whose predecessor Naikoku Express Co., Ltd., established a branch there later supplemented by facilities set up by Nippon Express as its business expanded. The Company since its founding has also had close ties with the Kintsuna Inari Shrine situated on the new Location premises, a shrine that has long been a familiar presence for local residents looking to ward off misfortune, ensure safe travel and prosper in business.
The newly completed integrated Locations will consolidate branches and Nippon Express (NX) Group companies with ground, sea, and air freight functions as well as the Head Office functions currently performed at the Shiodome Head Office Building. By eliminating the barriers between companies and departments and integrating organizations by function, Nippon Express will be pressing further toward a one-stop structure enabling it to fully exercise its comprehensive strengths and enhance its Group management capabilities.
The Company will also be using this relocation as an opportunity to undertake reforms to its work processes, working environments and work styles.
The transition to a holding company system, the introduction of an NX brand and the establishment of an "NX Integrated Locations" (name tentative) are all designed to help the NX Group realize its long-term vision of becoming "a logistics company with a strong presence in the global market" set forth in the "Nippon Express Group Management Plan 2023 - Dynamic Growth"
