The logistics sector is active globally all over the world and plays a major role to reach a carbon neutral society. While there are some progress in Japan, the EBC believes that there is still plenty of improvements that can be made. We are at the same time fully aware that many of the policies are globally decided.


  • The Government of Japan should set goals and initiate subventions to stimulate the industry and the market to invest and use more environmental-friendly logistic processes.
  • Japan should together with the EU take the lead to make the logistics sector more sustainable.
  • As part of the working hours limitations, Japan should implement policies that make it possible to transport bigger loads, such as double or larger trailers.
