Message from the President

Toward the Future Beyond “Logistics” × “Risk Protection”

Kanematsu Logistics and Insurance, Ltd was established in 2010 by merging the insurance agency business company (KIT, Ltd) and the logistics business company (Central Express. Ltd), which were established by Kanematsu Corporation in the 1960s. Last year, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the establishment of KIT Ltd, as a unique business company that provides one-stop services for "Logistics" and "Risk Protection" that are essential for trade. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported our company thus far. We will continue to work closely with each and every one of our business partners and strive for the future beyond "Logistics" and "Risk Protection", so we would like to ask for your continued support and encouragement.

Corporate Principle of Kanematsu Corporation

"Let us sow and nurture the seeds of global prosperity."

"Sow a seed now," and take action to benefit people around the globe, bade our founder, Fusajiro Kanematsu, setting standard of public duty that we at Kanematsu continue to uphold through a commitment to ethical business principles and corporate responsibility. The beliefs and philosophies that inspired Fusajiro Kanematsu in the late nineteenth century Meiji period, a time when Japan was striving to build national economy, were encapsulated in the document Our Beliefs: Kanematsu's Guiding Principles in 1967, on the occasion of our merger with The Gosho Company.
