TOKYO, Aug. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Senko Co. Ltd, one of Japan's largest logistics companies, is the latest customer to sign a major lease at Goodman Joso, coinciding with the building's completion. The building is Goodman Japan's newest and largest logistics facility, with 174,000 sqm over five levels.
Angus Brooks, CEO of Goodman Japan, commented, "With Goodman Joso's completion, we reaffirm our commitment to delivering best in class logistics solutions for our customers. We take great pride in providing high-quality and sustainable logistics developments that cater to businesses' evolving needs, and this facility embodies our dedication to excellence."
Tomohiko Ito, Senior Managing Officer of Senko commented, "We've chosen Goodman Joso as it perfectly caters to the diverse logistics needs of our freight customers and its expansive floor plate, allowing for efficient operations. This move marks the first step towards expanding our network into the eastern Kanto region as part of our mid-term business plan. Moreover, Goodman Joso's excellent access to the Hitachinaka Port makes it an ideal hub for connecting logistics operations in Japan and overseas.
"We already lease a significant amount of space in Goodman Business Park in Inzai City. Our employees highly appreciate the employee-friendly amenities in these facilities, creating a comfortable and motivating work environment. Goodman Joso offers even more appealing amenities and excels as a community-oriented project with an array of attractive facilities and surroundings. We look forward to the continued close collaboration between our company and Goodman in the future."
