Shortened lead-time through late-night flight utilization
The most late-night/early-morning flights in Japan operate out of the Kansai International Airport. By utilizing late-night/early-morning flights, it is possible to set shipment times later than ordinary flights in cases where parts are being shipped to assembly plants worldwide. For that reason, it is possible to reduce storage costs and to shorten the overall lead-time from the shipper to the delivery destination.
Facilities flexibly support temperature controls
Kansai International Airport is the first in Japan to offer medicine-dedicated joint fixed temperature storage (KIX Medica). By offering a medicine-dedicated joint fixed temperature storage and fresh shed, it is possible to ship medicines and farm and marine products that have difficult temperature requirements, to support shipper demands.
