About Yamato Japan

Yamato is one of the most extensive door-to-door delivery companies in Japan. The company’s unique approach to handling the complicated logistics supply chain in a country with a varied topography gets the credit for its enormous success in its field. The company uses gateways equipped to deal with high-frequency transportation to accelerate the speed of deliveries. The company offers a complete service package with Packaging, Payment and System solutions to support its highly efficient logistics supply chain. This allows the carrier to cater to businesses' growing needs without much hassle. 

The Yamato company was founded in 1918 to provide seamless Parcel and Mail services in the Japanese region. The company was the courier company to handle the delivery and parcel services in Tokyo. As the company scaled, it used a unique approach to offer express deliveries throughout the country. This was difficult before. Currently, the company operates through a network of 7351 locations that include four gateway transportation hubs and several corporate locations for efficient management and administration of the supply chain. 

With the help of the seamless delivery supply chain, the company can provide next-day deliveries in the entire Asian continent through its express services. The network processes 1.8 billion parcels annually, yet the company is known for its high delivery accuracy and negligible damages during transit. During its expansion as an international carrier, the company currently provides shipping and parcel services to over 23 countries and its domestic courier services. The company uses partners like UPS for a more efficient door-to-door delivery model outside Japan.

Despite its focus on international deliveries, Yamato can still provide a 100% coverage rate in Japan. The carrier is one of the largest and most widely used carriers by ecommerce companies operating in the region. The company provides EDI and Returns management services for more flexible operations. The company has also recently shifted its focus on providing holistic business solutions to the businesses using its services. Therefore, they have started giving packaging and payment collection services to facilitate a faster and more accurate fulfilment process in the ecommerce sector. ClickPost has a shipping API integration with Yamato to allow ecommerce companies from Japan and outside countries to have a strong order fulfilment network.
