Global Parts & Logistics
The Global Parts & Logistics Division will apply its integration functions in our areas of strength—including our global network, logistics infrastructure, supply-and-demand management, and assembly—and work together with partners that have technological capabilities to change the concepts of production, transportation, and connection to fulfill our responsibilities to future society and achieve sustainable growth.
The division has 167 sites operated by 110 subsidiaries in 38 countries around the world. By using these sites and our logistics networks and by establishing an optimally integrated parts logistics system, the division has established a global automobile parts supply chain.
In the area of production, our operations include tire and wheel assembly and other assembly businesses, a production business for airbag cushions and other parts, as well as an interior and exterior parts and accessories business covering all aspects of operations from planning and development through raw materials procurement and processing. Furthermore, we aim to achieve circular manufacturing in the medium to long term by recycling and reusing the materials used.
In the area of transportation, we successfully serve the diverse needs of our customers by using our global logistics network and supply-and-demand management functions. In addition, we promote CO2 reduction in the field of logistics by working with partners that have digital technologies in areas such as logistics optimization and the development and reuse of packaging materials used in transportation.
In the area of connection, we combine the division's unique business partner network, manufacturing and logistics functions, and our systems for managing global supply chains to provide solutions that meet frontline needs and achieve tasks such as the central management of data, contributing toward solving issues faced by customers not just in the automotive industry but also other industries.
To achieve these, we will continue to focus on the identification of cutting-edge technologies and new materials and the development of new functions. In addition, the division is promoting business diversification by finding new business partners and customers and seeking to expand our network, including in the field of environmental solutions.
Toward achieving carbon neutrality, we connect people, products, technologies, and society in environmentally friendly ways and contribute to the development of a next-generation mobility society.

- 1Toyotsu MANABU SQUARE
In anticipation of the spread of battery electric vehicles (BEVs), we opened this facility to enable visitors to experience the differences between internal-combustion-engine vehicles and BEVs. Using cutaway models, disassembled parts, panels, and other items, we are exhibiting and introducing changes in vehicles, differences in parts and structures, Toyota Tsusho's carbon neutrality initiatives, and other themes to promote activities that will help solve issues and problems in the automobile industry. The facility contributes to the automobile industry and initiatives for addressing environmental issues.

We practice measures such as reducing the number of truck trips through mixed loading and joint deliveries and reducing driving distance by using optimal route planning. By introducing systems for eliminating logistics inefficiencies and reducing environmental impact, which are key issues for the logistics industry, we aim to optimize logistics across the entire industry and contribute to the creation of a sustainable society.
