Yusen Logistics Transports Food to Poverty-stricken Areas of Cambodia

Yusen Logistics has helped support the non-profit organization (NPO), Peoples' Hope Japan (PHJ) in their ‘Maternal and Child Health Improvement’ project in poverty-stricken areas of Cambodia, by providing free transport of nutritional food into the country.
Donated to the organization by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Yusen Logistics transported 4,800 nutritional bars, making an export arrangement in Japan and then forwarding the food by air from Narita Airport to Cambodia. After their arrival, Yusen Logistics (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. handled the import customs clearance and arranged the delivery, with the Yusen Logistics Group arranging a one-stop service in support of the NPO.

PHJ works to support the improvement of health and medicine, focusing on the “education of health and medical care” within developing Asian countries. It provides continuing support and educational activities in the field of maternal and child health in particular. The food delivered has helped to aid health education within Cambodia's Kampong Cham Province.

Yusen Logistics is committed to the development and realization of a prosperous society, undertaking social contribution and humanitarian activities through logistics services now and in the future.
