    Offering Safe and Secure Storage/Logistics in the Philippines

    Service introduction

    Suzuyo Whitelands Logistics, Inc is the Philippine branch of Suzuyo Company & Ltd., headquartered in Shizuoka Ward, Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.
    The company started its business in the Philippines in 1995 and is mainly engaged in import and export business. In 2015, it became a local corporation and since 2017, it has been developing domestic logistics services using its own trucks.

    The Best of Suzuyo’s Cold Chain

     

    Suzuyo Whitelands Logistics, Inc is the first Japanese company to enter the business category of Cold Chain Services in the Philippines, offering security and safety to various customers. Aside from logistics in food products, the company is also engaged in the distribution of pharmaceutical products, which requires strict temperature control.

     

     

    1)Four years of operations for the pharmaceutical industry in the Philippines

     

    For 4 years now, Suzuyo has been working with the largest distributor of pharmaceutical products in the Philippines and has gained the trust of research institutes in the country including DOH. Over the past years, Suzuyo has operated around 6,000 trips and delivered to more than 18,000 locations with no damaged items, document errors or any unexpected incidents in the pharmaceutical industry.
    Suzuyo’s service specializes in storage with a temperature range of 2~8℃, which is mainly used to deliver sensitive products such as vaccines with extremely strict temperature control.

     

     

    2)Suzuyo’s quality of serving security and safety to customers in the food industry

     

    Before delivery with temperature-controlled vehicles was brought to the country, more than half of the volume of food products were disposed of due to bad quality of storage and transportation.

    However, the loss and disposal of food products were reduced and improved as secure and safe temperature-controlled vehicles were introduced.

    As a logistics company, Suzuyo engages with clients that have headquarters here in the country who handles fruit products such as bananas and pineapple, which require temperature control for delivery to maintain the quality of the products.

     

    3)Distributing high-quality milk in the Philippines—the true value of Suzuyo’s Cold Chain

     

    The dairy industry in the Philippines consists of 2% fresh from the farm cow milk, while the remaining 98% is either imported from another country or from powder milk, which has a longer shelf life.

    With this, Suzuyo is currently working with dairy companies that produce milk. Suzuyo takes pride in delivering an estimate of more than 100 trips per month of milk fresh from the farm. Through their logistics services, fresh milk products with green packaging are now accessible at middle-class supermarkets.

    Due to the business custom of distribution in the Philippines, various intermediaries enter between producers and consumers where the product price goes up at the same time, the quality gets worse. Suzuyo’s role is to provide service to eliminate those various intermediaries and simply connects producers, consumers, with security and safety.

     

     

     

     

    The Best of Suzuyo’s Import / Export business!

     

    In the import and export business, Suzuyo also provides borderless logistics to its customers by utilizing their own tracking service mainly for North America.

     

     

    1)Characteristics of Suzuyo’s international logistics

     

    Suzuyo has local subsidiaries in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, and is also affiliated with UPS—one of the world’s leading logistics integrators.

    In addition, Suzuyo also utilizes its international logistics network of more than 450 bases in 120 countries and combine it with their own network to provide speedy, detailed services and support to its customers’ overseas business with high-quality logistics services.

    Considering the quantity and lead time, Suzuyo offers optimum transportation modes such as air, sea transportation, and international intermodal transportation service that combines land, sea, and air, and have been evaluated by customers.

     

    2)Import and export progress management system originally developed by Suzuyo

     

    When importing or exporting, there are many work processes to be made up to the arrival of the shipment at the site such as advance preparation.

    Suzuyo can monitor the import and export shipment in real-time by using the LTS (Logistics Tracking System), an import and export progress management system originally developed by Suzuyo.

    By using Suzuyo’s management system, it is possible to track and manage the status of shipping operations for each bill of lading (B/L).

    Staff comment

    In domestic logistics services, we are offering non-stress logistics services. There are many customers who have such troubles that they do not know if their delivery will come or the products are always melting, and most of the time, providers do not answer questions even if they inquire. With strict employee management, we are developing Japanese quality logistics services here in the Philippines to provide security and safety to our customers.
