Supply chain management

Optimum traceability through sales activities over many yearsOptimum traceability through sales activities over many years

Through our long experience on the supply chain management in the carbon industry, we have established a characteristic and collaborating business scheme with our clients all over the world. In this scheme, we, Sojitz JECT, procure the raw materials from China and deliver it to Japan, then, we supply the products of the Japanese client to an Indian client, and ultimately we sell the finished products of the Indian client to Russian clients by utilizing the temporary storing function in the EU. By managing the whole process as the principal(or the organizer), we become able to archive the traceability of the products and to bring economic benefits to all the concerned parties. The aforesaid scheme is just an example of many cases, and we will keep bringing more benefits to our strategic partners by utilizing our experience and knowledge.
