: Japanese logistics firm Yamato Holdings will start refrigerated parcel deliveries between Japan and France from 2018 - the first service of its kind for Europe.
Yamato is partnering with France’s largest courier Chronopost to deliver parcels from Japan to Paris with a next-day delivery service.
Deliveries will be made by Yamato in Japan and by Chronopost in France.
Chilled products will be handled using a special container that keeps goods cool to maintain temperatures between zero and 10 degrees C.
Yamato expects demand in France for Japanese sake, fruit and fish, and cheese and white asparagus from France to Japan.
