We donate spoke reflectors for bicycles to local governments and traffic safety associations throughout Japan. These materials are distributed at traffic and road safety class and traffic safety campaigns to raise awareness of traffic accident prevention. In FY2022, we donated them to the Yokohama Traffic Safety Association and the Hitachinaka City.

Donation for traffic and road safety

We have been donating to the Traffic Accident Orphans Association (public interest incorporated foundation ("Daddy Long Legs"). The Traffic Accident Orphans Association was established for the purpose of lending tuition fees to children whose parents have died or suffered a severe disability due to a traffic accident and who have difficulty as a result in studying financially, in attempting to equalize educational opportunities and develop human resources that are of use to society.

We send instructors to lectures for university students conducted by the Japan Association for Logistics and Transport for the purpose of developing human resources for logistics.

Donation course for university students

In FY2022, under the theme of "Functions and Management of Logistics Companies," we provided lectures online centering on presenting an explanation of our main business, 3PL, to a total of 310 university students from Aoyama Gakuin University, Tokyo Metropolitan University and Yokohama National University. We discerned the high level of interest in logistics due to some universities choosing participants in a draw as a result of many people wishing to attend the lectures, and the total number of participants increasing by around 70 from the previous year. The lectures were an opportunity to encourage the younger generation entering the workforce to understand and be interested in logistics by introducing the latest efforts of logistics companies, which cannot be learned from textbooks alone, and to ask for frank opinions.
Participants gave comments such as "I was able to deepen my understanding on both the merits and risks of 3PL business," "Video presentation made it easy to understand the work contents and processes," and "I was able to learn in detail about issues currently facing the logistics industry, such as the need to respond to globalization and the need for labor-saving measures to solve the shortage of drivers and workers."
