Overview of logistics services in China
Sagawa Global Logistics is the SG Holdings Group company that handles international deliveries and manages related warehousing and logistics bases. We started operations in 2003 to become the first Japanese logistics company operating in China, in an effort to make early inroads into the country's rapidly developing market. We have also begun operations as a third-party logistics (3PL)* business in China, using experience gained in Japan as a base. With the continuing globalization of production, in countries that are within a one-hour time-zone difference from Japan such as China, Taiwan and South Korea, Sagawa Global Logistics aims to provide general logistics support for the development of seamless international business for customers.

Aiming to be your one-stop logistics partner in China
Sagawa Global Logistics is capable of shipping by air, by sea and over land to provide door-to-door deliveries from Japan to international destinations. In China as well as other regions around Asia, we collaborate with local corporations and capable companies to bring customers highly reliable, integrated shipping services. By working together with Shanghai Dazhong Sagawa Logistics and utilizing our business alliance with a partner company of the China Post (China Express Delivery) for access to their delivery network, we are striving to provide one-stop logistics services on par with those available in Japan. In 2011 we entered into a business agreement with the HANJIN group, a general distributor, to strengthen our services in South Korea. Currently, we are making strong efforts to develop our 3PL business in China. A country often called "the factory of the world," China has also gained attention due to its massive consumer market. As the flow of goods continues to intensify, we are building logistics bases equipped with an array of capabilities, and drawing upon the wide array of strengths offered by the SG Holdings Group to provide solutions for customers expanding their business into China.
