Started merchandise export
Started exporting merchandise by container unit through “Uni-President Enterprises Express” which is the joint company of “Uni-President Enterprises Corporation”, the largest food business group in Taiwan, and Yamato Transport.
Through providing service that handles “language/logistics” that inhibit exportation of Japanese food, we came to the conclusion that this infrastructure is the service we should provide to small to medium sized producers nationwide. That is why we created “J-BASS, multi-language website with logistic function”.
