TOKYO, June 9, 2022 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ --

Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (hereinafter "Nippon Express"), a group company of 
Nippon Express Holdings, Inc., launched on May 30 a logistics service capable 
of handling goods requiring ultra-low temperatures (-20 C to -85 C) for the 
pharmaceutical industry.

As a priority approach for the core business growth strategy outlined in the 
"NX Group Business Plan 2023 - Dynamic Growth," the NX Group has positioned the 
pharmaceutical industry as a priority industry and is moving forward in 
developing quality control systems and improving its business infrastructure 
both inside and outside Japan in accordance with the Good Distribution 
Practices (GDP) established for pharmaceuticals.

Nippon Express has heretofore provided a pharmaceutical distribution platform 
with strict temperature control in two ranges -- 2 C to 8 C (refrigerated) and 
15 C to 25 C (constant temperature) -- and has recently introduced innovations 
that will enable it henceforth to handle goods requiring ultra-low temperatures 
in the -20 C to -85 C range.

These enhancements will permit ultra-low temperature storage and transport of 
pharmaceutical products at the research and development stage and in the 
formulation process. Nippon Express is thus able to offer 
temperature-controlled logistics services for a broad spectrum of 
pharmaceutical commodities, including raw materials, intermediates and active 
pharmaceutical ingredients as well as finished products.

Going forward, Nippon Express will continue expanding and developing its 
services globally to meet demand for increasingly sophisticated and diversified 
end-to-end pharmaceutical logistics services.
