TOKYO, June 21, 2022 /Kyodo JBN- AsiaNet/ --

-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.
