The Nippon Express Group has been emphasizing the importance of safety education and training for truck drivers and forklift operators. In order to prevent workplace accidents and disasters, all licensed drivers and forklift operators are required to complete and pass Nippon Express’ exclusive training and certificate examination before starting their work.

Every May, the Nippon Express Group Driver & Forklift Operator Contest is held as part of our efforts to improve driving performance, including compliance with traffic rules, fuel-efficient driving and maintenance inspection skills.

To ensure continuous growth, it is essential for companies to create a corporate culture that allows employees to develop their skills and abilities. In that sense, the Nippon Express Group established an education and training policy, and is promoting human resources development.
