Long awaited fruit returns to Japan

At the request of Cyprus-based Unifrutti Corporation, which cultivates, transports, processes and distributes fruit entirely in-house, Nippon Express Italia has provided across-the-board support for the transport of blood oranges from Sicily to Japan. This rare fruit variety had been unavailable in Japan for over a decade due to quarantine reasons, but imports have now resumed after discussions between both governments.


Shipped by air from Italy, they arrived at the food terminal of Nippon Express' Tokyo shipping branch on 26 April 2022, where a ceremony was held. The oranges were then delivered to customers after quarantine and customs clearance procedures had been completed.


The company announced that it will continue marshalling the group's networks and functions to provide optimal logistics services that satisfy the wishes of customers seeking to create a new future. (ah)
