Warehouse Storage & Distribution Processing
We keep multipurpose warehouses at major harbors throughout Japan where we carefully store our customers' cargo. We offer services with a high degree of added value, including distribution processing such as inspections and repacking.
Kamigumi's warehouses offer a variety of features to ensure storage at the appropriate temperatures required by different goods, including ambient temperature, fixed temperature and cold storage. We possess many warehouses with unique features, such as fully automatic racks designed to meet the needs of our customers' goods. We also possess silos in a variety of regions, for use in storing lose bulk cargo (i.e. grains such as wheat and soybeans).
Ambient Temperature Warehouse
An ambient temperature warehouse is suitable for storing cargo not requiring temperature control such as general food products, machinery, textiles, chemicals, stone materials and wood.
A ﬁxed-temperature warehouse is suitable for storing cargo such as fresh produce, peanuts, rice, bulk beans and general food products that must be kept at temperatures within a range of 0°C to 20°C. Cargo quality is preserved by strict management of temperature and humidity.
Cold Storage/Refrigerated Warehouse
A cold storage/refrigerated warehouse is suitable for storing cargo that must be kept at temperatures within a range of +10°C to -25°C. Strict control of the temperature within a range suitable to the particular cargo preserves quality.
A fumigation* warehouse is available for agricultural goods.
*When harmful organisms are discovered during inspection of agricultural goods imported from overseas, fumigation (sterilizing gas) is used to ensure these organisms do not spread within the country.
Cylindrical silos are used to store bulk cargo, such as barley, wheat, corn and soybean meal. We ensure high levels of quality through strict quality control.
