ZERO CO., LTD. was originally established in 1961 as a Subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., and has provided transportation and maintenance services of new vehicles, mainly manufactured by Nissan. In 2001, it became independent by way of a management buy out and since then we have pursued efficiency through more than 20 internal projects and operational streamlining activities. Consequently, we survived cost increase factors induced by pressure from the automakers to cut freight charges and measures against emission regulations of diesel cars.
In order to develop the existing vehicle transportation business, we aim to continue to provide services beyond our customers' expectation via enhancement of operation systems and customer services.
In August 2004, operations commenced in a JV company founded in China, a rapidly-growing market, and we are also entering other Asian markets including Thailand, which are expecting vehicle production volume growth. With accumulated experience and skills as a vehicle transportation provider, we strive to pursue further growth, and become a leading company in the logistics industry through strategic alliances and M&A.
We would like to ask for your continued support and encouragement as we aim to achieve sustainable development and create New Zero.
