Warehouse Management Operations

Expansion of “kanban” (signboard) delivery

“Just-in-time” delivery of “what is needed, when it is needed, and in the amount needed.”
TLS has established bases with advanced warehousing functions in the vicinity of Toyota Motor Corporation manufacturing plants. In keeping with the “kanban” (signboard) system, we undertake sorting, inspection, processing, and storage in order to contribute to the smooth supply of chiefly auto components.

Also applicable for storage of specialized products

We offer warehousing operations where we prepare an appropriate storage environment depending upon the products handled.
We have one of the largest warehouses in Japan dedicated to the storage of electronic components.

Main products we have handled

  • Auto component-related (including electronic components)
  • Iron and steel raw materials
  • Non-ferrous metals
  • Aircraft components
  • Textile products
  • Synthetic resins
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Construction materials
  • Hazardous materials, etc.

Product assembly processing

TLS undertakes processing work for products delivered to us.

Construction of a logistics information network: integrating IT and LT (logistics technology)

With the unique logistics system developed by TLS, we offer faster, cheaper, safer, and more certain logistics with a comprehensive system for management and operation of logistics information encompassing receipt of kanban data, to warehousing instruction, receipt/delivery notification, and preparation of manufacturer order data.

Catering also to customers outside the Toyota Group

We cooperate with alliance partners throughout Japan to offer logistics services.

Storage of specialized products (electronic components)

One of the largest electronic component warehouses in Japan

Storage of electronic components requires high quality management.
At our Anjo Device Center, we have established a storage environment specially adapted for electronic components, which is managed under a comprehensive storage system.

Features of Anjo Device Center (specialized electronic components warehouse)

  • Consistent temperature and humidity control (established temperature and humidity management standards)
  • Static electricity and dust countermeasures (electrostatic mat, anti-static workwear)
  • Comprehensive security measures (auto-locks, internal surveillance cameras, full-time patrols)
  • Earthquake countermeasures (seismic-resistant structure, stoppers to prevent storage rack falls, etc.)

Development and implementation of our unique warehouse management system (WMS)

We employ a comprehensive management system with TLS-developed two-dimensional barcodes for products.

We undertake integrated logistics management incorporating order receipt, proxy order placing with manufacturers, storage, inspection, processing, and distribution.

We achieve “just in time” delivery to customers with precise information based on receipt and shipping information gained through lot management.

Assembly processing

Sophisticated assembly capacity and a high quality management system

Assembly is applied to rack and pinion, critical safety components for suspension, requiring sophisticated assembly capacity and a high quality management.
TLS has built a production management system comprising both system and equipment aspects, and is advancing improvements, and constantly aiming for higher quality.

Offering consolidated logistics, an assembly processing function, and high value added service

Our Kyushu Center uses JR container transportation to obtain individual components from manufacturers in remote locations (Kanto, Tokai, Kansai, and Shikoku), which are assembled at the center for shipment.

Cost reduction for customers, and consideration for the environment (CO2 reduction)

We have managed to greatly improve storage efficiency through our transportation of individual components and assembly operations.
This also contributes to reductions in transport costs and CO2 emissions, and reduces storage space required at the delivery destination.
