Responding to new trends in mobility services and expanding our earnings base

In the motor vehicles field, in addition to the export and import of vehicles and parts, the Integrated Transportation Systems Business Unit I has established upstream and downstream value chains across its entire operating area, which encompasses assembly and production, import and wholesale, retail sales, financing, leasing, rental and car sharing services. Our focus is to expand our business platform to serve a wide variety of customers by responding to changes in user needs, from ownership to on-demand use, and from on-demand use to shared use. Leveraging this business platform, we operate independently or together with strategic business partners to secure a stable earnings base, globalize our human resources, and establish new business platforms.

In the construction and mining equipment field, we conduct sales, aftersales service, financing, and rental operations around the globe. We have also developed a machinery sales business, for machine tools, agricultural equipment and service robots, including power-assist suits, to cope with increased demand for infrastructure all over the world.

In the rail transport field, in addition to the import and export of rolling stock, railway facilities and systems, and offshore sales, we are utilizing Japanese institutional finance and public-private partnership schemes to invest in various rail transport infrastructure projects, leasing the rolling stock in Brazil, and developing passenger and freight transportation businesses. Demand is expected to grow for rail as an environmentally-friendly logistics channel, and we aim to provide services that meet the needs of customers throughout the rail transport value chain including in-station businesses.
