Medium-term Management Plan 2022
In order to realize our Vision—The co-creative logistics solutions partner. For
emergency, and always will be— the Group has formulated a new five-year plan,
Medium-term Management Plan 2022,
beginning in the fiscal year ending March
continuing until the fiscal year ending March 31, 2027.
In our previous Medium-term Management Plan 2017, we positioned the first three years as a reversal period, focusing on strengthening our business profitability and rebuilding our financial base. In the last two years of the plan, we primarily worked on the three key areas for sustainable growth: Construction of Overwhelming Field Capabilities, Establishment of End-to-end Integrated Solution Services, and ESG Management. As a result, we successfully achieved all of our numerical targets, attained the reversal of our business, and laid the foundation for sustainable growth in the future.
Under the new Medium-term Management Plan 2022, we aim to achieve further growth by deepening our efforts to date. As the first-call company that can be trusted by our customers, we will go on the aggressive with proactive investment, focusing on the three pillars of our growth strategy: Top-line Growth by Mobilizing the Group's Collective Strength, Reinforcement of Operational Competitiveness, and Building Management Foundations to Support the Deepening.
Top-line Growth by Mobilizing the Group's Collective Strength
We will promote a deepening of our integrated solution services, which is our unique business model, expanding our sustainability-oriented business with our competitive abilities to make and execute proposals, and digging deeper into our inter-industry operations by making the most of the Group's broad customer base and various logistics features.
Reinforcement of Operational Competitiveness
By deepening our efforts toward thorough standardization, we will realize our "overwhelming field capabilities" that combine the power of people with the power of technology. We also aim to secure a competitive advantage by improving the quality of our operations, and furthermore, to improve profitability by lowering the cost of operations.
Building Management Foundation to Support the Deepening
We will strengthen our management base in the following four aspects:
Transformation of business models and reform of corporate culture
Creation of mechanisms to generate innovation and the strengthening of alliances with various platformers
Development of new office buildings and logistics facilities, enhancement of the asset value of existing facilities, and the improvement of the work environment
Reinforcement of efforts to realize a decarbonized society, an expansion of investment in human capital, and the enhancement of governance
In the Medium-term Management Plan 2017, we restrained investment and reduced interest-bearing debt in order to rebuild our financial base. In the Medium-term Management Plan 2022, we aim to achieve both proactive investment and enhanced shareholder returns based on the financial base and profitability established in the previous medium-term management plan.
