Logistics

Here at the Mitsui Chemicals Group, we carry out a wide range of initiatives to ensure that our products are safe and transported in a manner that takes into consideration the environment.

Management System

Policy

Based on its Responsible Care Policy and Companywide regulations for risk and crisis management, Mitsui Chemicals has established “Off-Premise Logistics Environment, Safety, and Quality Management Bylaws.” At the same time, the Company strives to maintain and improve its logistics environment, safety and quality (logistics responsible care). Each year, targets are set based on the previous year’s responsible care results (number of accidents, complaints, etc.). Various policies and measures (audit of logistics subcontractors, education, on-site discussion, campaigns, etc.) are incorporated into the “Annual Responsible Care Plan” with definitive steps then taken to implement a PDCA cycle.

System and Responsible Officers

Responsible Care (RC) results are reported and views are exchanged through regular meetings with the Companywide Responsible Care Committee and the director in charge of logistics

Monitoring Methods

In addition to the above-mentioned responsible care results and Annual Responsible Care Plan progress, regular verification is carried out at logistics meetings (weekly and monthly meetings).
