DIGITAL and supply chain solutions leader TMX has joined forces with Japanese construction and real estate firm Fukuda and Partners to target the fast-growing Asia Pacific market.
Fukuda and TMX said there have been rapid change and challenges global supply chains and businesses across the Asia-Pacific region are undergoing supply chain transformations.
They said this partnership will strengthen the capabilities of the complementary businesses and enable a fully integrated supply chain, property and construction service with on-the-ground experts across the region to better serve clients.
Tetsuya Fukuda, president and CEO of Fukuda and Partners said: “We have had positive feedback from our client, one of the biggest retailers in Japan, on the results of our professional services with TMX building their supply chain network in Australia,”
“TMX and Fukuda are both very focused on logistics related construction and real estate services, so we believe that we can create constructive collaboration for mutual benefit.
“As a result of this partnership, we are certain that TMX and Fukuda can better satisfy our clients by providing our integrated professional service, including TMX’s supply chain management expertise, to each client in Asia’s value chain.” Fukuda said.
“Logistics is the lifeline connecting people in daily life, so we believe that the outcome of this partnership will contribute to building sustainable development in our society,” he added.
TMX CEO Travis Erridge said the firm previously worked with Fukuda and Partners on a supply chain network in Australia for a major Japanese fashion retailer.
“Together we brought local expertise and understanding to various parts of the project and created a seamless process for the client. We want to continue this cross-region localised service for our shared clients across Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
“Our two firms are complementary in services and company values. We are both committed to providing the best outcomes for our clients and trusted to deliver an integrated world class solution. This will be further strengthened through this partnership,” Erridge said.
TMX boasts more than 150 experts in supply chain, property, project management and ecommerce in more than seven countries across the Asia-Pacific region and has led major business transformations for the likes of Coles, Kmart, Coca-Cola Japan Bottlers Inc, Asahi, Singapore Post, Bunnings and Universal Robina.
