Rhenus and Sankyo Set Up Joint Venture in Japan

Rhenus and Sankyo Set Up Joint Venture in Japan
Danny Gill

The Rhenus Group and Sankyo Corporation have registered the joint venture known as Rhenus Sankyo Logistics K.K., with Rhenus holding two thirds of the shares.

Sankyo is part of the Fujiki Group, a network of firms with more than 20 companies in Japan and worldwide. Rhenus Asia and the American Sankyo subsidiary Clearfreight have already been working together for many years. The joint venture will mainly handle imports and exports to and from Japan, but also provide domestic services like distribution and warehousing in the country. In addition to their individual expertise, Rhenus and Sankyo are also introducing existing Japanese business to the joint firm.

“Japan is the fourth largest importer and exporter in the world. Because of its specific business culture, however, it’s difficult for foreign companies to establish a foothold in the market; so an experienced local partner is an enormous support. The Sankyo Corporation is a renowned company in Japan and will enable us to expand our Asia-Pacific network,” says Tobias Bartz, a Member of the Rhenus Board, giving the reasons for the cooperation arrangement.

“The Rhenus Group persuaded us, primarily because of its corporate philosophy and its logistics expertise. Our successful cooperation in the past has been based on professionalism, quality and mutual trust. We’d now like to go one step further with the joint establishment of this company,” says Kozo Fujiki, President and Executive Director of the Sankyo Corporation.
