Outline

Ever since the service first went into operation on January 1976, pioneering the concept of door-to-door delivery, Takkyubin has continuously been the industry leader. At that time, the only way to send a package was to take it to the post office, or else wrap it carefully, bind it with string, attach a shipping tag, and carry it to a train station served by the former Japanese National Railways. The concept of Takkyubin arose out of a desire to eliminate these inconveniences, so that a person would need only to make a phone call to have the package picked up, at his or her own home, and delivered the next day at a reasonable and clearly stated price, with only simple preparations required. Since then, Yamato Transport has accurately gauged the unmet needs of the customers who use their services and has added a succession of products and services for higher added value. In recent years, they have strived to increase the satisfaction of the customers whose packages it handles, and thanks to these efforts, the company has grown to the point where they now transport 1.2 billion package pieces each year.
