Message from the President

President Akihito Nagata

Sumitomo Warehouse started in the warehouse business in 1899 as a private enterprise of the Sumitomo family, under the Sumitomo Warehouse trade name. Based on the Sumitomo Business Philosophy handed down since its founding, Sumitomo Warehouse Group (“the Group”) engages in a comprehensive logistics business built around warehousing and supported by harbor transportation, international transportation and land transportation, as well as a real estate business originating in the redevelopment of land for logistics use. These endeavors are rooted in our Corporate Philosophy: “We will provide earnest and timeless support for logistics functions as a social infrastructure needed by all, while also working to create new services sought by our customers and society.”

As the world continues to change with advancing globalization and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, peoples’ ways of life and values are also diversifying. Society is also facing a variety of other issues, including climate change, and the Group conducts its business while working to address these issues.

Going forward, we will work to remain a company that earns the trust of its customers, business partners and local communities. At the same time, we will fulfill our responsibility to enhance the value of the important products entrusted to us from our customers by ensuring they are delivered properly to the right places, thus supporting our customers’ business and society, while striving to achieve a better society and enhance our corporate value.

We look forward to your continued support and understanding.

President Akihito Nagata
