Truck Transport

Using our nationwide network, we offer optimal trucking services

With the aid of our finely meshed network of distribution hubs spanning Japan, we offer our customers distribution and delivery services that match their merchandise and distribution structure. Other services are information-related, such as Internet-based cargo tracking and cargo-vehicle matching.

Senko's Joint Distribution Network

We have established a nationwide distribution network. We also offer Internet-based cargo-vehicle matching services.

Railway Forwarding

In cooperation with Japan Freight Railway Corporation, we offer environmental friendly, efficient door-to-door transport

Railway forwarding is attracting attention as the core component of multi-modal transport, and a way to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion resulting from truck transport.

We have combined JR Freight Railway Corporation's services with our trucking operations to create a door-to-door distribution system which offers high-speed punctual delivery, notably for large-lot cargo. By using containers (such as railway containers and tank containers), we are utilizing the seamless transition from rail to truck, for a versatile transport system. This makes its possible to pursue distribution efficiency, as well as environmental preservation.

Responding to our customers' needs, with a top record in the industry

We provide a large variety of container sizes and functions, in order to meet our customers' expectations, whatever they may be. This setup has made us the second largest user of railway freight services (based on FY 2000 sales). We support our customers' logistics with this performance record and the know-how we have acquired.

Our Railway Forwarding Network

We offer comprehensive door-to-door transport services, using railway forwarding among Japan Freight Railway Corporation's 27 freight terminals in Japan, and truck delivery to the users.

Cargo Tracking Using the Railway Web Service

We are a member of the Railway Web Service. This service makes it possible to confirm, by Internet, transport information on railway containers. Thus our customers can receive real-time information on the cargo transport.

We also provide information on carbon dioxide emissions, which are lower than with full truck transport. This supports our customers' efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their business activities.
