KWE got its start in 1948 when the Operation Bureau of Kinki Nippon Railway Co., Ltd. began handling air freight. The division was spun off in 1970 as Kintetsu World Express, Inc. and has since grown into a leading international freight forwarder offering one-stop services in air and sea cargo and logistics. Today, our global network of over 700 centers covers 44 countries and regions, from Europe, the United States, and Asia to Africa and the Middle East, where more companies are expected to set up their presence. We are proud to offer optimal logistics solutions to meet the needs of each customer.
In addition to our extensive network in Asia, where demand for freight transport is the highest in the world, our greatest strength is in the quality of our services. In 2015 we added APL Logistics to our group of companies, a move that further expanded the range of what we can offer. You can depend on us as an international general logistics provider capable of designing and delivering the most varied and versatile logistics solutions in the industry.
As a Global Logistics Partner chosen and trusted by customers who operate globally, all of the officers and employees at KWE will continue to work together to provide highly value-added logistics services for the prosperity of society as a whole.
