The Realization and Implementation of Faster and more Advanced Logistics at Lower Costs
In order to achieve a faster, more advanced and more cost-competitive logistics style while accurately responding to today's ever changing economic needs and circumstances, Maruni conducts research and development (R & D), constantly pursuing a course of INNOVATION and serving as“THE BEST PARTNER”to our clients. We are pursuing these operations based on two pillars: R & D, to which we apply the Top-Down method, and small group projects, to which we employ the Bottom-Up approach.

We propel our R & D by centering on the Business Division, aiming for bolder and more innovative improvements in productivity. Needless to say, we search for the very latest in equipment and system, which will match our expectations in implementation widely around the globe. We even go a little further in considering deployment from multiple angles - scale, capability, cost, wave nature and instantaneous force. We comprehensively consider on the whole, what genuinely aids certain business operations in carrying out the most competitive deployment. We have the strongest of “barrier-breaking” spirits, thinking outside the box of existing logistics concepts when constructing the various Maruni innovative systems, all of which proudly exhibit our outstanding productivity. Our systems are built through an extensive and detailed process, ranging from reviewing each job slip in current use to the reorganization of your company's entire structure, together with indigenous development and utilization of practical and advanced computer systems for operational innovation. With regard to RFID(IC CHIPS), this has the potential to become a revolutionary tool, which we aim to implement and utilize in the logistics field in a tangible way. As such, we are now conducting test runs and further research with manufacturers at home and abroad and striving towards implementation.
Through accessing the latest technology and information from Japan and abroad, and through the quality information pipeline, we constantly maintain the most advanced informational environment the world has to offer.
