Founded in 1912, SMU is one of the country's leading maritime universities for the development of forwarding management personnel, having been the first Chinese university to establish departments in transportation-related fields (transportation, shipping management, logistics management, and transport engineering).


NX China and NX Shanghai established a scholarship fund in January 2016 and concluded a memorandum of understanding with SMU to provide scholarships over a period of 10 years. This year was the eighth in which these scholarships were offered, and 10 SMU students selected as scholarship recipients attended the award ceremony.


Executive Officer Sumitoshi Matsuo, Regional General Manager of the East Asia Region, told the audience at the award ceremony: "In January 2022 we transitioned to a holding company structure and changed our name to the NX Group as part of our efforts to become a logistics company with a strong presence in the global market. We will continue building sustainable logistics infrastructure and contributing to society through our business both in China and globally."


SMU expressed its high regard for the NX Group's sustainability management as well as its desire to further strengthen its partnership and exchanges with the NX Group through such programs as an endowed lecture series.


The NX Group remains positively committed to undertaking social contribution activities in East Asia to help develop human resources capable of playing active roles in the logistics industry.
