In recent years, localization of production systems and international employee recruitment has accelerated due to the globalization of markets. This is especially true for Japan, where foreign executives are moving to the island nation en masse because of growing career opportunities. The relocation of corporate execs involves changes in the living environment; including acclimating families to a different culture and education system, supporting the launch of new lives in a new place.

Yamato currently has its own moving/relocation service in 58 regions and 25countries around the world, while supporting the transportation of household goods along with the transfer of international human resources . For the most part, these relocations, or international “moves,” are executed through the HR department of the client company, with the help of YAMATO’s door-to-door integrated transportation service.

YAMATO has the experience, expertise and knows the background of its customers, building a support system using our seamless transporting of household goods and lives from their place of origin to the destination city.
