Currently, SG Holdings Group handles freight including international e-commerce cargo from USA to Japan, through overseas agents. In recent years, with rising health consciousness, personal imports of health supplements into Japan have been increasing alongside a growing market for international e-commerce cargo . The Group established SGUSA as we anticipate that there will be a great demand for high quality comprehensive distribution services utilizing Sagawa Express's network within Japan.

SGUSA is located in the vicinity of Los Angeles, California where many transnational e-commerce companies catering to Japan are located.
