Initiatives to reduce GHG emissions in business

Introduction of electric vehicles (EV)

GHG(Scope1) as a measure to reduce EV We are proceeding with the introduction of At Haga Office in Tochigi prefecture, in cooperation with local business partners, we have a facility for delivering vehicle parts, etc. EV Introduced a truck. In addition, our consolidated subsidiary, SIAM NISTRANS CO., LTD., 2023 Year 6 The group's first EV We are installing a trailer.

EVsnot only do not emit GHGs or pollutants, but also achieve low noise and vibration due to motor running, which is highly effective in solving noise problems and reducing the burden on drivers.

Promoting modal shift

We are working to reduce GHG emissions by using rail and Ocean transport, which have a lower environmental impact, instead of long-distance truck transportation.

Rail transport

Compared to truck transportation, rail transportation emits about 1/10 the CO 2 per ton-kilometer, making it extremely effective in reducing GHG emissions.It also reduces environmental impact by eliminating traffic congestion and improving transportation efficiency. It is also effective in reducing

Domestic container rail transport service

We provide an International multimodal Transport service that combines Core transportation with collection and delivery by trucks from departure and arrival stations, and we offer this to our customers as a solution to the shortage of truck drivers in addition to reducing environmental impact.

Indonesian rail transport service

Our consolidated subsidiary PT.NISSIN JAYA INDONESIA provides rail transportation services between Jakarta and Surabaya. This is a combination of rail and truck transportation using sea containers that are transported in the same section, and compared to transporting the entire process by truck, it not only reduces GHG emissions, but also stabilizes lead times and reduces damage. It is also effective in reducing the rate.

Vietnam North-South Rail Transport Service

Our group company NR GREENLINES LOGISTICS CO., LTD., provides a north-south rail transportation service that connects Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for approximately 1,700 km via Da Nang. This is an environmentally friendly logistics service that uses a block train that uses our own developed freight cars (car wagons) and containers, and can reduce CO₂ emissions by approximately 60% compared to truck transportation.

Domestic Ocean transport

RO-RO ship transportation

A RO-RO ship is a ship in which a truck or trailer loaded with cargo moves on its own and transports the cargo. By combining truck and Ocean transport, it is possible to significantly reduce GHG emissions compared to transporting the same area by truck alone. In addition, Ocean transport has various advantages, such as on-time operation, smooth transportation that is not affected by road conditions, and eliminating the shortage of drivers. Our company provides regular route services for RO-RO ships.

Coastal shipping

Domestic shipping, which connects domestic ports and transports large amounts of cargo over long distances, is attracting attention as an environmentally friendly means of transportation. They also played an active role in the emergency transportation of supplies when land routes were cut off, such as during earthquakes. Our company provides tramp route services for domestic vessels.

container round use

Container round use means that after container Vanning at an import base, the empty container is not returned to the container depot at the port, but the inside of the container is cleaned and then transported to a nearby export shipper and reused as an export container. The distance that containers are transported empty during both import and export operations is significantly shortened, leading to a reduction in GHG emissions. In addition, by using inland container depots, resources such as truck drivers and containers, which have become a serious shortage problem in recent years, can be used more efficiently, and it can also indirectly contribute to relieving congestion at ports. Since then, we are promoting the use of this scheme to shippers who can apply it.

Facilities with reduced environmental impact

Promoting the elimination of fluorocarbons

Specified/alternative CFC gases used as refrigerants in refrigerated and Frozen warehouse, for which demand has been increasing in recent years, have an extremely high global warming potential and impact on the ozone layer in the event of a leak, so we are gradually switching to natural refrigerants at our facilities. We are proceeding with the switch and are working to reduce GHG emissions.

Introduction base

Maya Refrigerated Warehouse, Heiwajima Refrigerated Logistics Center

Truck reservation system

We have introduced a cloud-based truck reservation system certified by the Logistics Comprehensive Efficiency Act at our warehouse bases. By pre-booking time for trucks to pick up and deliver cargo at the warehouse, the warehouse can efficiently prepare cargo, and the truck can significantly reduce waiting time at the warehouse, realizing efficient work for both parties. In addition to reducing GHG emissions, this system is also effective as a countermeasure against the shortage of truck drivers.

Introduction of LED lighting

We are promoting the use of LED lighting in warehouse facilities and offices to reduce power consumption and associated GHG emissions (Scope 2). As of the end of March 2023, approximately 50% of our locations have introduced LEDs, and we will continue to expand the number of locations that have introduced LEDs.

Switching to renewable energy

The majority of our GHG emissions come from electricity use, and switching to renewable electricity has a significant effect on reducing GHG emissions.

Installation of solar panels

We have installed solar panels on the roof of our facility to generate renewable electricity. At Kanagawa Wharf, which began operations in September 2023, we installed our first self-consumption type solar power generation panels, contributing to reducing our GHG emissions (Scope 2) and improving our renewable power usage rate. .
