International multimodal transportation service
We propose optimal international multimodal transport with door-to-door service
We offer competitive logistics costs thanks to the volume of the Toyota Tsusho Group. In addition, though our many contractors and agreements with major distributors in Japan and overseas, we provide a diverse and reliable regular shipping schedule.
Toyotsu Logistics' proposed international multimodal transport scheme
Through the TLS network and warehouse functions in Japan and overseas, we combine the benefits of sea, air, and land (road and rail) transportation to propose the optimal logistic solutions to customers' needs. We take our customers' cargo from door to door quickly, economically, safely, and reliably.
(We also create tailor-make solutions to provide added-value logistics through combination with services including warehouse storage, inspection, and re-packaging)
Supporting customer sales by leveraging our Group network
We support customers' sales beyond merely logistics by leveraging the Toyota Tsusho Group and our overseas network.
Furthermore, we offer customers optimal commercial logistics by providing them with information on the significant changes taking place in the global environment, and international logistical information.
We also assist in equipment logistics for the launch of overseas production bases
We can respond to a wide range of our customers' wishes when they are launching production at overseas bases, including equipment and production material logistics, and shipping arrangement at the time of equipment replacement.
- Logistics from packaging through to installation of equipment
- Production material logistics
- Logistics which can deliver right to the line, in accordance with our customers' wishes
- Product logistics
- Logistics whereby we deliver to our customers' business partners
- Recycling logistics (logistics for used equipment, waste materials)
Transportation operation for large-scale equipment including plants
From small components through to large-scale equipment
Regardless of the size of the cargo, we can propose the optimal transportation method and route in accordance with our customers' needs and based on an exhaustive knowledge of the local situation and special characteristics of each country.
International integrated service for heavy goods, equipment, and machinery
We offer an integrated international logistics service from quotation through to local hand-over, based upon the particular characteristics of heavy goods and special cargo transportation.
<Features of transporting heavy loads and special cargo>
In accordance with the contract details, we conclude a support contract for necessary procedures, paperwork, and pre-loading inspection, and arrange transportation and provide advice on paperwork in accordance with the L/C.
Sea and inland transportation service including handling for the destination and via countries for ODA projects
TLS handles integrated transportation arrangements for ODA projects, which differ from the requirements for commercial cargo.
<Features of ODA project transportation>
|Transportation beyond the port to the location specified by importer||requires sea and inland multimodal transportation|
|Many regions do not have established logistics routes||requires preliminary investigation and individualized handling|
|Official assistance cargo, unlike commercial cargo||requires duty-free customs clearance procedures|
(Usually this is handled by the importer; however, when the country is the importer, an agent is needed)
