Aiming for higher efficiency in transporting products, Panasonic is expanding its our efforts to land imported products at a port close to the target sales area in Japan. Conventionally, landing of products was centralized to a port near the West Japan Global Logistics Center (GLC) in Amagasaki City in Hyogo Prefecture, stored at the West Japan GLC, and then transported to respective locations as required. Landing the products at ports closer to the target sales areas can reduce the distance required for land transport within Japan, thereby contributing to reducing not only CO2 emissions but also inbound and outbound deliveries between sites as well as distribution costs. In fiscal 2022, we strengthened activities for products other than washing machines and televisions that we had been working for to reduce CO2 emissions because of their high sales volumes, and rolled out the activities of unloading our products at ports close to the sales area to other product categories such as air conditioners, hair care and beauty products, vacuum cleaners, heaters, and DVD recorders, and further reduced the volume of long distance domestic transportation volume. From now on, we will continue to expand the scope of products and also further refine the projection of sales demand in various regions, optimize the stock amounts held in those areas, and expand the landing products at ports near target sales areas.
