Cambodia presently relies in large part on imports for the pharmaceuticals used in its hospitals, clinics, etc. As the country has few transport companies equipped with refrigerated trucks or capable of providing properly controlled frozen storage, NE Cambodia opened the Phnom Penh Logistics Center, fully equipped with refrigerators and freezers, in December 2019. This Logistics Center has garnered attention from government officials and others as one of the country's leading pharmaceutical storage facilities.

In April 2021 NE Cambodia began offering storage services for medical equipment and pharmaceuticals to be used at Japanese hospitals in Cambodia. With increasing demand for pharmaceuticals anticipated, the company will be developing services that provide customers with safer and more secure delivery and help improve Cambodia's healthcare environment.

Nippon Express will continue endeavoring to enhance its services to meet increasingly sophisticated and diverse pharmaceutical transport needs, and to provide high-quality transport services tied into the global network that constitutes one of its key strengths.
