In April 2013, Hankyu Hanshin Express made a new start within the Hankyu Hanshin Holdings Group as the core company* responsible for the international transportation business.
Today we face an era in which we must swiftly respond to the significant changes and diversified operating environments that arise from the rapid globalization of the economy and rise of developing nations. We are now entering a stage where our ability to thrive within the global market, successfully grow and contribute to society is being tested.
In this kind of situation, in 2013, we established “V2025,” our long-term management vision with 2025 as the target year, and advanced foundational development and structural reforms in these three years until 2015. In addition, in conjunction with the new Medium-Term Management Plan starting from the fiscal year 2016 (a 3-year plan), V2025 will enter its second stage, from the expansion of business scale into sustained growth.
Aiming for the realization of that roadmap, we will move forward with reforms toward a balanced business portfolio, construct and execute an optimal profit expansion policy, and deepen our global governance structure to make it stronger.
In the near future, great changes are predicted for the logistics environment, such as the expansion of the EPA, the start of the AEC, and the coming into force of the TPP. In that situation, the entire Hankyu Hanshin Express Group will join together on a global level and work toward the enhancement of our brand’s value by responding to customers’ various needs and pursuing high-quality services.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation of your unwavering support and loyalty.
