- Background to certification

The Kansai region hosts numerous sightseeing spots very popular with foreign tourists, and the 2025 World Exposition in Japan will be held in Osaka. So demand for halal products is expected to grow. With its many air and sea routes to Southeast Asia, home to a large Muslim population, Osaka also serves as a transit point connecting both eastern and western Japan with overseas destinations.

The Osaka International Transport Branch’s Chuo International Office handles import/export, bonded warehouse storage and domestic logistics operations for halal products.

To handle an anticipated increase in foreign visitors from a diversity of cultural backgrounds, Nippon Express is constructing a network for halal logistics services to support customers’ supply chains in Japan, where interest in halal products is growing, in order to offer safety and peace of mind to Muslim visitors and residents.
