The Japanese Logistic company Sagawa Express will start activity in Israel after signing with Jackie Line Company on a representation agreement. The agreement was signed after long negotiations that took almost a year. In the first phase, the cooperation will focus on airfreight solutions to/from Japan.
Sagawa group was established 40 years ago. Today the company has 334 offices throughout Japan, it employs more than 31,000 workers and has over 20,000 trucks. Sagawa’s annual income is about 7.5 Billion.
“the company’s spread throughout Japan enables overnight distributions and pick-ups, and this is our main interest”, said Jacky Biton, Jacky Line's CEO.
“After long negotiations and further examinations, the Japanese company was convinced in our reliability and our financial strength. We managed to spark some interest in them after they saw the potential of the Japanese-Israeli market”, he added.
Jacky Line’s CEO stated that in the first stage, the co-op will focus airfreight solutions for exporters and importers while using Tokyo’s airport as a base hub. In the second stage the service package will grow and it will include seafreight and containers consolidations both in import and export through Yokohama port.
