What we expect from you….
We are in the changing era. We are looking for candidates with following attributes of Logical Thinking, Passionate and with Integrity. “Do nothing’ is considered a sin in the company. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Logical thinking, careful deduction and creativity to make things happen are the key success factor in Yamato group.
TA-Q-BIN business is a sort of social infrastructure as a part of logistics.

Warehousing and custom clearance with 24 hours operation is extremely efficient to expand business arena of Asian territory with Japan. Logistic flow will be dramatically changed together with the growth of the business of the global clients.
Our ASEAN regional operations network….
We started TA-Q-BIN operation in Taiwan in 2000 followed by the startups in Shanghai and Singapore in 2010, further expanded to Malaysia and Hong Kong in 2011. What is more we set up recently the regional headquarters function in Singapore to cover ASEAN territory from strategic growth point of view.
We owe very much on local employees in our local operations simply because they are ‘in the market’ with the hands-on expertise of local business process. Such people, however, can be also hired in Japan especially if they can speak willing to learn Japanese. Number of non-Japanese (Japanese speaker) employee is stably increased to 120 already (around 20 non-Japanese average in a year is hired). We also have a non-Japanese employee (English speaker) in Japan and we will proactively recruit non-Japanese high potentials who expect to work for local operations such as Malaysia and Indonesia. We will also pursue the bright students and even MBA holders for the regional headquarters functions.
