Nisshin Trans Consolidator Co. (NTCC) started this millennium entering the freight forwarding business. Flash forward to 2018, it has since grown into an import and export powerhouse with a wide range of logistics solutions in Japan, China and the rest of Asia, particularly Myanmar and Bangladesh.
Founded in 2001 in Osaka, NTCC made its mark by taking advantage of China’s remarkable economic growth and efficiently importing goods with high-speed delivery service.
“NTCC ensured fast delivery services by constantly asking cargo handlers to put its containers on top of the ships,” says president Yasunori Sakamoto.
“That way, when the ship reaches the shore, the company’s containers get off the boat first and the goods reach customers faster.”
The company has since grown its network beyond China and Japan, opening up partnerships and subsidiaries in Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Indonesia, while retaining overseas agents in Southeast Asia and Europe. NTCC is also providing significant import and export solutions that bring China’s products to Japan and Southeast Asian countries, and from other Asian countries to China or Japan.
“We will deploy high-speed transportation and stable transport services in Asean and Europe as we are currently doing so between Japan and China,” Sakamoto says.
At the core of NTCC’s growth and excellence is its drive in delivering customised logistics solutions that fit each country’s needs. When NTCC enters into new partnerships and markets, it puts a lot of effort into researching about existing conditions and needs in that area before coming up with services that are custom-made to its clients. For instance, NTCC is expanding into countries with infrastructure shortages, such as Bangladesh and Myanmar, where the company has invested intensive information-gathering and study, and is gaining many popular reviews from customers.
“We aim to create innovative, tailor-made solutions that are more effective for a landlocked country such as Laos,” Sakamoto says. “Our customers can be assured that NTCC will exert the same zeal regardless of market or geography.”
