about yusen logistics


Given the meaning of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), corporate activities that focus only on compliance are incomplete. Indeed, companies today are required to go a step further and understand that they are members of society and must therefore give due consideration to social ethics, human rights, the global environment and local communities. Embracing this change in the social environment, the YLK Group is tackling its corporate social responsibility sincerely, determined to meet the expectations of shareholders while aiming to achieve sustainable development.


As Yusen Logistics’ leading athlete devotes himself to competing on the global stage, he elicits the empathy of our employees and help foster a sense of unity worldwide

Ayatsugu Hirai, a swimmer competes both in Japan and overseas, works with us at Yusen Logistics. He ranks among the leading swimmers in the world and, in order to be competitive, he devotes himself to training. This attitude embodies our true Values of Connected, Committed, and Creative, and elicits the admiration of our employees around the world. As we seek to achieve its TRANSFORM 2025 long-term vision, hopes are high that his athletic endeavors will help foster a sense of organizational unity. Going forward, we will continue to provide an environment in which he can dedicate himself to his sport, and the entire group will support him as he embarks on new challenges.

Social contribution through swimming: swimming lessons for children!
