Sagawa’s Strengths

Not only do we catch the obvious issues, but we also carefully catch potential issues and solve them with custom-made logistics.


GOAL (GO Advanced Logistics)
—Advanced Logistics Project Team—

In 2014, we launched GOAL—GO Advanced Logistics—to offer advanced logistics solutions.
It refers to Sagawa Group's cross-functional professional team that advances with you to reach the “Goal” of solving logistics issues.

GOAL aims to offer integrated logistics solutions to client companies by combining the functions of each of our group companies, including the nationwide network of Sagawa Express that excels in B2B logistics, the know-how we have acquired from SGL's distribution processing and warehouse operation, international forwarding, IT systems, and payments.

Simply solving the obvious issues of our clients is not enough for us to become more than just contractors. Only when we address their potential issues can we grow together as business partners.
GOAL aims to carefully catch the potential issues of our clients, establish a system, and contribute to their further growth and development as partners.
To achieve this, we try not to limit ourselves to conventional methods and are constantly implementing new initiatives.

We solve your issues with integrated logistics solutions that only GOAL can offer.

Cases and Achievements

From Upstream to Downstream
We Cover the Entire Flow of Goods

Our area of expertise is primarily downstream last-mile delivery where we deliver shipments right to the customers’ hands. However, the current issues in the logistics industry do not stop there.

Our group companies have diverse expertise and achievements in various fields, ranging from domestic/international logistics and mass transportation to infrastructure systems. By working hand in hand with them and improving our collaboration, we are able to expand our logistics business fields.

We are especially focusing on covering the entire flow of goods. We proactively engage in upstream activities, such as procurement, manufacturing, inventory management, and processing, to widely offer our problem-solving abilities across all logistics services outside simply carrying goods.

This is all to improve our clients’ supply chain.
As experts in problem-solving, we will carry out your projects from your perspective.

GOAL Group Synergy


Next-generation Large-scale Logistics Center, X Frontier

X Frontier is SG Holdings Group's flagship center that combines various logistics functions of transit logistics centers, inventory logistics centers, and each group company.

At this site, it is possible to organically combine the various resources our group has, including delivery, logistics, international transports, and large/special transports. By establishing new solutions here and expanding the areas we offer help with, we will continue to enhance our system to provide support in terms of logistics to address your management issues.

The Three Values X Frontier Offers

The Development of Transportation Capabilities

X Frontier’s transfer center has 296 truck-loading docks (60 for unloading and 236 for loading) and 5 of the latest types of automatic sorting machines that have a high processing capability to sort 100,000 packages in up to 236 directions per hour. Thanks to this high processing capability, several Kanto relay centers have been consolidated, the transportation speed and capacity have improved, and the number of transport trucks on the main line has been reduced and their load factor has improved, enabling us to offer our customers a high-quality, stable transportation service.

New Solutions

By combining each of our group companies’ logistics functions, including transfer centers, distribution centers, international logistics, large/special transportation, and e-commerce platforms, we are able to create new solutions. For example, at SG Holdings Group, it is possible to handle the logistics process, from processing and sorting to shipping—which is usually performed at various sites—in one stop. However, by increasing the processing capability of relay centers and promoting automation and labor saving by using the latest logistics robots, X Frontier can help you further shorten lead time, optimize costs, and reduce environmental impact. Moreover, we are now able to handle international, large, and special transportation in one stop, expanding the areas we offer help with more than ever.

Contributing to SDGs

X Frontier also reduces environmental impact and improves the workplace environment through its business activities. To reduce environmental impact, we reduce the number of transport trucks on the main line by consolidating relay centers, and prevent traffic in the area by establishing a parking space for large vehicles that can accommodate 250 vehicles on the roof. This is expected to reduce CO2 emissions. We also work on improving the workplace environment by increasing the number of loading docks for unloading to decrease the waiting time of main-line transport truck drivers. Moreover, we reduce the workload of employees by installing automatic sorting machines and logistics robots.

Main Features of the Facility

Super Hub

By consolidating several Kanto relay centers in X Frontier, we are able to establish a more efficient transportation network and offer a high-quality, stable logistics service.

The Largest-Scale and the Latest Sorting Equipment

Enabling 24-hour Operation

With a robust security system that includes a disaster prevention center, our state-of-the-art central logistics center can operate 24 hours.
