NYK Opens Hokkaido Branch

NYK Group unites to decarbonize and meet Hokkaido's logistics demands

In April, NYK will open a Hokkaido branch in Sapporo. This will be the company’s sixth domestic branch in operation, following those in Yokohama, Nagoya, Kansai, Kyushu, and Akita, and the first in Hokkaido since the company’s Sapporo branch was closed in 2009.

Aiming to contribute to the resolution of logistics issues and sustainable revitalization of Hokkaido, NYK concluded an agreement on collaboration and cooperation with the Hokkaido Prefectural Government on January 23. With the Hokkaido branch as a starting point, the NYK Group will deepen cooperation with the prefecture and respond to the promotion of green innovation in Hokkaido, logistics demand resulting from the construction of semiconductor plants and data centers, and the growing demand for marine transportation due to modal shifts.

In the future, NYK will continue to expand its business activities and network in Hokkaido and neighboring areas, together with NYK Group companies.
