We were among the earliest to enter and deploy businesses for container train transportation and automobile railway transportation in India, responding to the increase in cargo transportation associated with its economic growth. We are also starting a number of initiatives intended to resolve issues with the management system and distribution infrastructure which are being faced by the rapidly growing medical industry there. Based on channels developed through these initiatives with hospitals, manufacturers and distribution companies, we are supporting the growth of Japanese medical related companies.
We have fully entered the container train transportation business in India, the first Japanese logistics company to do so, and rolled out services for inland northern India. We are also supporting the growth of Japanese medical related companies there.
