Yasunori Takahashi, Managing Executive Officer, and Regional General Manager of Nippon Express South Asia & Oceania, along with Seiji Baba, Consul General of Japan in Chennai, commissioned the warehouse.

Takahashi in a statement said while increasing the company's presence in India, they are aggressively developing business in South India.

He said that Seiji Baba mentioned that more and more Japanese manufacturing companies prefer to set up their business in Andhra Pradesh. Nittsu's establishment in Sri City is very timely.

The warehouse, which was built in about 26 acres in less than 9 months, has a built-up area of 20,094 square meter.
