JPL(Japan Polymer Line)area

JPL is a logistics network that will make beneficial to petrochemical companies all over Japan.

40 years of JUST-BIN

40 years of JUST-BINWe have been meeting the needs of our customers in the Chubu region with our unique transportation JUST-BIN system.

 We at Daisei Warehouse have used JUST-BIN for the past 40 years mainly for the parts automotive customers and established a logistics network specializing in polymer products to serve the petrochemical companies of the Chubu region (Aichi,pref, Mie,pref, Gifu,pref).

Our innovation for customer

Aiming to be of more serviceExtending the benefits of JUST-BIN from Chubu region to all over Japan

 We at Daisei W&T will continue to expand the 11 centers established with JUST-BIN by center to center (point to point) connection by lines, and then join the lines to create surfaces for a wider network coverage.

Background of petrochemical companies

  1. 1. Decrease in workforce
    Japan entered the phase of declining population in 2011.
    Working age population has also declined.
  2. 2. Decline in birth rate => Impact on higher education
    The number of births in 2015 is 10,05,656 and is showing a declining trend since 1991.
    Out of these, the percentage of students advancing to universities is 56.5%.
    University graduates will not want to pursue a profession as a driver.
    High school graduates are facing a problem with the licensing system
    for large and medium sized motor vehicles.
  3. 3. Decline in domestic freight traffic Due to globalization domestic production bases have shifted overseas.
    Decline in domestic freight traffic Due to globalization,
    domestic production bases have shifted overseas.
    In 2006, the domestic freight traffic went below
    5 billion tons and is showing a declining trend ever since.

    Domestic freight traffic has declined.
    On the other hand, there is an increase in the number of transport company.
    These is fierce competition among the transport company.
  4. 4. Increase in the number of transport operators
    Nationwide Total Number – 63,000 operators, Aichi prefecture – 2,803 operators, Ibaraki prefecture – 2,529 operators, Chiba prefecture – 1,822 operators, Fukuoka prefecture – 3,055 operators, Okayama prefecture – 1,129 operators. Percentage of operators owning less than 20 transport vehicles is 78.2%.

    Two laws were enacted in 1990“
    Consigned Freight Forwarding Business Act” and “Motor Truck Transportation Business Act.” => As a result the number of transport company increased.
    1. Fixed freight rates to liberalization
    2. Business license to notification system
    In 1990, there were 39,555 operators => Increased to 62,637 operators
    in 2014. An increase of 23,000 operators in 20 years. => This rapid growth continues.

  5. 5. Logistics measures company
    With the increasing popularity of Internet shopping, delivery volumes are showing an increasing trend.
    In 2010 there were 3.2 billion packages for delivery => In 2014 these increased to 3.6 billionThe big three together constitute 92.5% of the total business Transporters want to be in the lucrative small-lot operations, but building a nationwide network and maintaining quality is difficult.

    Handling of polymers is difficult for courier companies and they do not deliver unless the products are packaged in cardboard boxes.Route operators are also reluctant.

    Unless an independent distribution network is setup for polymers, quality of distribution cannot be maintained.

To the world where securing drivers is difficult

Appreciation and challenges

Appreciation of over the 40 years will change to new challenges.

 We at Daisei Warehouse will establish JPL (Japan Polymer Lines) to expand the JUST-BIN system across the whole of Japan that has been fostered by us in the Chubu region, and uniquely meet the needs of the petrochemicals companies in Japan.
