Efforts on Safety by Vehicle Servicing and Safety Devices
In order to prevent traffic accidents, regular inspection of trucks, thorough vehicle maintenance, and teachings using safety devices are carried out.
Traffic accident prevention through thorough vehicle maintenance
SG Motors Co., Ltd., which assumes the servicing work of all the vehicles owned by SG Holdings Group, is trying to eradicate accidents caused by improper maintenance and reduce burdens on the environment by performing rigorous inspections and maintenance. Vehicles used in daily collections and deliveries are inspected daily by the drivers, and both three- and twelve-month detailed inspections are conducted as part of SG Motors regular maintenance.
The progress of repairs for vehicles that have been recalled by manufacturers is carefully managed, and preventative measures are taken in support of smooth vehicle operations on a regular basis, to support the safe operation of more than 28,000 group vehicles.
Increased bases of operation and capabilities for an enhanced servicing network, with the aim of achieving vehicle safety
SG Motors is continuing with active efforts to open new shops, strengthening its nationwide vehicle servicing network for an expanded support system and better service.
The Sapporo and Takamatsu Branch maintenance shops were moved to new locations in FY 2008, new shops were established in Saitama, Gunma and Niigata Prefectures in the northern Kanto region in FY 2009, and the new Takaido Branch and Higashi Osaka Branch were established in FY 2010. In April 2011, we moved the Gunma Branch to a new location and established a new Kawasaki Branch for a total of 26 vehicle maintenance shops, 2 vehicle body fabrication shops and 287 associated maintenance shops throughout the country, covering every area nationwide.
In the future, we want to expand our activities beyond maintenance to meet the needs of the diversifying logistics field. We plan to offer servicing for tractor-trailers, cement mixers, and other specialize vehicles and industrial equipment, while adding sales and repairs of forklifts and other shipping and transport equipment to our business lineup, all in order to meet customer demand.
