    I worked at Kintetsu World Express (U.S.A.) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good managers, opportunities for international travel, allows for freedom of schedule, sales executives are treated well in terms of respect and HR. Focused on close customer service. If you can perform well in terms of business development you could have a secure career here into the foreseeable future. The company is very loyal to quality employees for the most part. This company is a few steps away from being a true global power in the industry. However, those steps would require significant financial investment.

    Cons

    Some key Management remains too "Japan" focused. Understanding this is the core business model, but some shift towards growing non-Japanese focused business and also growing the sea freight department and customer IT systems would help propel the company into the 21st Century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foundations of the company are strong because its axis is Asia, but need to begin transforming more to a complete global logistics company in terms of regions of the world, sea freight, contract logistics, and update the customer visibility systems is a BIG need. Adding Road Freight would also be a big plus in developing a local foundation in the USA to compete with CHR and EI.

    Negative Outlook
