Nippon Express Launches New Transport Service Using Environment-friendly Isothermal Packaging


-First Japanese Logistics Company to Collaborate with EMBALL’ISO, Experienced in Vaccine Transport-

Nippon Express Co., Ltd., a group company of Nippon Express Holdings, Inc., has become the first Japanese logistics company to collaborate with EMBALL’ISO, a French company with a proven track record in vaccine transport, by launching a new international air freight service using environment-friendly isothermal packaging produced by EMBALL’ISO.


Environment-friendly isothermal packaging:

Background to service development
The medical and pharmaceutical industries among others require strict temperature control of their products during transport, and there is growing interest in environment-friendly logistics services across all industries. As a key measure in its growth strategy for core businesses, the NX Group has positioned the pharmaceutical industry as a priority industry in the “NX Group Business Plan 2023 — Dynamic Growth” and has accordingly been expanding its temperature-controlled transport services.

Nippon Express is the first Japanese logistics company to partner with EMBALL’ISO by developing a new service combining EMBALL’ISO’s reusable passive (non-powered) high-performance isothermal packaging with international air transport, thereby enhancing its temperature-controlled transport services. This new environment-friendly service will help reduce its customers’ CO2 emissions while strictly maintaining the required temperatures during transport.
