Nippon offers land, sea, and air transport solutions with a particular focus on heavy hauling and artistic treasures. They also offer supply chain management services.

The company’s current strategy calls for structural reforms of their Japanese operations to realize cost savings and increase profits as Nippon also expands its overseas footprint. The company would also like to increase the number and frequency with which it undertakes mergers and acquisitions.

It has begun carrying out its strategy by acquiring the Italian firm Franco Vogo in 2013. It also established an alliance with the Japanese electronics maker NEC Logistics Limited by taking a 49 percent stake in the company.
