Japan's Yamato launches cold-chain parcel delivery services
Japan's logistics company, Yamato Holdings, recently launched their cold-chain parcel delivery services from its facility at Tokyo's Haneda Airport.
The company aims to expand its market in countries across Asia, where the demand for cold-storage services is expanding rapidly.
Yamato also launched its home delivery services through a new cold-storage vehicle, designed for frozen parcels.
In Southeast Asia, only big retailers and restaurants have their own cold-chain networks. Yamato predicts that the demand for parcel -delivery services is set to grow stronger within the industry.
Convenience stores in Southeast Asia, deal in more non-perishable items than frozen and chilled products.
The spread of cold-chain logistics services is expected to help increase the variety of products on offer in such stores.
