1. We all represent the company.

Why is it important?

Yamato has Respect for individuals

Yamato was built on the concept that people represent a greater asset than money, facilities, and equipment. Our employees are not simply "human resources." Instead, they are our greatest asset. We understand and respect the fact that each employee brings unique value to the company.

To do this, we must respect the following:

Creating teamwork

The strength of Yamato as an organization comes from these unique individuals coming together as a team and working cooperatively and cohesively towards their shared goal.

Taking ownership

Yamato believes that all employees will demonstrate initiative in the workplace and help others to do the same, while being able to collaborate effectively as a team. Achievement is a collective effort and by supporting others, we can better achieve individual and shared goals. We believe that reaching our shared goals will ultimately benefit each individual within Yamato.

Representing Yamato

We recognize that our own actions represent Yamato as a whole, and that we have the responsibility to ensure that this is reflected in our interactions with all of Yamato's customers and partners.

2. We connect our customers' hearts with every delivery.

Why is it important?

Yamato believes in the Unique value in every delivery

The transportation of goods is the origin of Yamato's business. However, we transport more than just goods; we deliver our customers' thoughts and emotions through each service. And so it is important that every Yamato employee is always attentive and eager in asking, "What can I do to bring each and every one of our customers more satisfaction?"

Yamato provides Indispensable services for society

Our delivery and shipment of goods—along with the surrounding services—positively affects the lives of every person. These individuals come together to form communities, and these communities make up the larger society. Just like railway, telecommunication, gas, and water services, we provide indispensable services to these communities and ultimately our society as a whole. To do this effectively, we must first actively seek to do more for each of our customers.

To do this, we must respect the following:

Handling with care

As we transport not only goods but also our customers' thoughts and emotions, it is our aim to deliver the goods and services entrusted to us in a timely and precise manner, with a strong sense of responsibility and sincerity.

Improving constantly

Yamato employees must constantly strive to innovate and improve our logistics network, thereby streamlining operations and providing the best possible service to our customers. This kind of initiative translates to improved performance that promises lasting growth and success for Yamato.

Preventing accidents

It is also imperative that efforts are made to prevent any and all accidents, so as to not impede Yamato's ability to deliver satisfaction to our customers. "Accidents" are not just accidents on the road, but also problems and errors made in the process of providing any service to our customers. Preventing accidents takes continuous efforts on both an individual and corporate level.

3. We conduct ourselves both professionally and ethically.

Why is it important?

Yamato strives to Enrich society

As every Yamato employee is engaged in a wide-reaching service that is indispensable to their communities, each employee must always ask himself/herself, "How can I be more useful to my community?" The important responsibility with which Yamato employees have been charged is to maintain the high quality of existing services that make people's daily lives and business processes easier, as well as to bring added value through new services. Through each employee's efforts to help their community prosper, Yamato is helping to enrich the society as a whole.

To do this, we must respect the following:

Acting responsibly

As a member of the community benefitting from the convenience of society's modern infrastructure, each and every employee must observe all laws and behave with courtesy and discipline.
To ensure that Yamato has the capacity to fulfill these responsibilities, each individual must make every effort towards self-improvement and personal growth.


Yamato Management Philosophy:

Our Management Philosophy expresses the business objectives of the Yamato Group and the direction toward which we are working.

Yamato helps enrich our society
by enhancing our social infrastructure,
creating more convenient services
for evolving lifestyles and industries,
and developing innovative logistics and distribution systems.

Helping to enrich our society

Yamato does not simply work in pursuit of profit. Yamato has a responsibility to contribute to the prosperity of its customers, shareholders, partners, employees, and local communities. To fulfill this duty, Yamato follows responsible business practices based on its management philosophy and engages in various activities outside its business realm as a corporate citizen. In doing so, Yamato will help enrich communities and ultimately society as a whole.

Enhancing our social infrastructure

Yamato's logistics and distribution services have become an important part of social infrastructure. These services create networks that connect different people, communities, and regions; therefore Yamato works to enhance these networks to further benefit communities.

Infrastructure (the social matrix)—such as roads, railways, electricity, gas, water, and telephone networks—has made our lives more convenient and is now an integral part of our daily lives. And so it is our responsibility to continue to improve these existing networks and bring these same conveniences to communities around the world.

In addition to the numerous innovations Yamato has already implemented, Yamato has broadened its range of services in cold chain distribution systems, global freight forwarding, and customs clearance solutions.

Yamato will continue perfecting its global networks to provide high-quality services to its customers, both in Japan and throughout the world.

Creating convenient services for evolving lifestyles and industries

Yamato endeavors to pioneer and deliver high-quality services to improve the lives of everybody. Yamato welcomes the complex challenges presented by the growing needs of its customers who require speed and efficiency at an affordable price. Yamato works endlessly to meet these needs through innovative services, which give Yamato a competitive advantage that allow it to provide the convenient services its customers require in every aspect of life, whenever and wherever needed.

Yamato recognizes that it takes time and effort to develop an idea for a service to become a well-established business pillar, such as the TA-Q-BIN services, and so Yamato dedicates itself to cultivating new services in order to satisfy the needs and wants of all of its invaluable customers.

Developing innovative logistics and distribution systems

Yamato is a pioneer in the field of global logistics and distribution for communities and industries. Yamato leverages information systems to enhance and streamline integrated global logistics that incorporate freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, order fulfillment, and transportation.

At the same time, Yamato uses its strong logistics network for its innovative distribution that allows customers to directly ship and deliver products to their end-users.
