Looking to a Safer Society
As we use trucks daily, it is our important mission to help make safe traffic society a reality. By communicating with local communities, we teach the importance of traffic rule observation.
Offices' efforts on safety
As an achievement award regarding safety, Sagawa Express set up the Continuous Accident Free Award scheme for our offices. "Continuous accident free" is calculated by the number of vehicles that belong to the office multiplied by the continuous days without accidents; that means, the results of the concerted efforts of all the office employees on safe driving are evaluated.

The Assessment Audit for Transport Safety Management by the MLIT
Due to the high ratings our safety initiatives received during the FY 2009 Assessment Audit, the evaluation policy was changed, lengthening intervals between evaluations of transport safety management. Based on this new policy, there was no such evaluation in FY 2010, and the next evaluation is scheduled for FY 2011. We will continue to work on the improvement of safety awareness throughout the entire company and further promote our efforts.
