Having a logistic business partner in Japan offers many advantages for importers and exporters.

  1. Firstly, the country’s extensive rail and highway networks make it easy for goods to be transported to and from the country.
  2. Secondly, the country’s low-cost labor force and abundant supply of skilled labor make it an attractive manufacturing location.
  3. And lastly, the country’s stringent safety and environmental standards make it a desirable place to do business.

Given these advantages, it is no surprise that the logistics industry is growing rapidly in Japan. The Japanese Logistics Market was estimated to be valued at $269.8 Billion in 2022. And, according to the World Bank, the sector is predicted to grow even faster in the coming years, reaching $547 billion by 2025.

This growth is being driven by a number of factors:

  1. Firstly, Japan’s economy is continuing to grow, which means that businesses are able to generate more revenue and invest in new infrastructure.
  2. Secondly, the country’s population is ageing, which means that there are more people who need to purchase items such as clothing and food.
  3. And lastly, the country’s appetite for products from overseas is increasing, which means that businesses that can provide quality and affordable products are in a good position to succeed.

Japanese retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers and suppliers go to great lengths to offer the right quality and quantity of goods at the right time. Customer satisfaction in the long- and short-term is non-negotiable in Japan.  Brand loyalty is built upon this behind-the-scene sacrifice.
