Taking measures to solve the environmental issues by improve packing -Efforts to Reduce CO2 Emissions-

At Narita South Logistics Center, we developed reinforced corrugated cardboard which is 100% recyclable.

We will contribute to reduce CO2 and work on solve the environmental issues.

RESY Recycling symbol (right)

The Corrugated Recycle symbol is used worldwide to both promote the recycling of corrugated and advertise its ultimate recyclability.

The corrugated cardboards printed the recycle symbol will be shipped across the world and be reused to make new corrugates cardboard.

The corrugated Recycles symbol

Our reinforced corrugated cardboards are printed the RESY symbol which guarantees the complete disposal and reuse of all transport packaging.

RESY guarantees the complete disposal and reuse of all transport packaging bearing the RESY symbol. The legal use of the RESY symbol means that all the specifications of the German Packaging Law for transport packaging have been fulfilled.

Our reinforced corrugated cardboards will be smoothly collected and recycle because they fulfill their specific criteria.

It was necessary males to assemble heavy wooden boxes so far. However, reinforced corrugated cardboard is very light compared to wood, and easy to assemble. It has made females possible to assemble and much more safety.

Additionally, reinforced corrugated cardboard is ideal for heavy grade packing with same strength as wooden box, and can cut down on the use of cushioning with well shock absorption.

Furthermore, corrugated cardboard keeps moisture away from the products, which leads rotproof and mildew proofing.

We lined up hybrid car to caring earth-friendly

In addition, we aiming meaningful work efficiency and job performance.

Pros and cons for hybrid car

Pros

-fuel efficiency

more expensive than usual gasoline models however it’s possible to reduce fuel cost and decreasing refuel efforts

-environment-friendly

keep low level emit to CO2 when electric running and allowed them to taxes reduction and dutyfree due to their environmental function passed standard value from Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism

-to maintain silent mode all time

engine sound almost of all nothing!! Don’t worry about noise stress.

-long lasting engine

light impact for burden to start up engine due to working combined with mooter drive

Cons

-expensive for purchase price

-there are cases for buttery lifespan may short

lifespan of drive buttery connect to fuel function unavoidable deterioration of efficiency no matter how good one

-no running sound

one of cause for traffic accident that’s why no sound makes hard to notice for pedestrians new strategy for accident that add to vehicle approaching notify equipment in these days

-inside of car space is narrow

equipped with big size mooter drive buttery -get high chance to inefficiency fuel depending on running condition on express-way, mountainous area without signal there are not makes use of their feature and pros

Reducing CO2 Emission through The Transportation of a Full Trailer Vehicle

The world is facing urgent such as global warming, air pollution in metropolitan and so on need to address in recent years.

Unfortunately, despite some improvements in fuel consumption efficiency, these emission are still rising, mainly due to increasing road freight traffic.

In the middle of demanding environmental issue, ASAHIMORI associated in a common cause with Ohkawa Unyu Co.,Ltd.(-our supplier company in Kashima-City Ibaraki-Pref, 1000 vehicles owning) and we decided increase trunk transport using by full trailer vehicle.

We can expect to reducing CO2 emission, in addition they make effective and stable shipment due to carrying mass freight for two large vehicles by one at the same time.

Also, this transportation can stay items in one track from our warehouse to destination. It means that it will not move until it has packed. It is ideal to move high-value, high-risk items or heavy haul items across long distances.

Additionally, it leads to solve chronic driver shortages.

Asahimori is confident that those approaches will be a logistics solution.
