Transporting a Wide Range of Cultural Properties and the World's Greatest Treasures

Having been given the opportunity to move cultural properties where they have never been moved, Nippon Express has transported a wide variety of cultural properties and artworks belonging to Japan and overseas nations, such as National Treasures, and the greatest treasures from the world’s leading museums and galleries, including Cambodian cultural heritage items, the Apollo command module, and artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamen.


High-Quality Transportation

Nippon Express has been providing transportation services since 1937 in Japan and since 1958 in other nations. We can therefore guarantee customers high-quality transportation services based on the experience and know-how that we have built up.
Nippon Express utilizes its freight tracing system, which pin-points the location of the cargo, and various GPS systems, etc., which monitor the transportation status of freight, to provide high-quality transportation services to any destination in the world.

Constantly Enhancing our Packaging and Transportation Technologies

Transporting Japanese cultural properties, including National Treasures, and the world’s greatest treasures over the course of many years has enabled us to accumulate a wide range of knowledge and experience in handling and arranging the international transportation of such articles. We are also well-versed in the techniques pioneered by previous generations of Nippon Express employees, as well as using the most recent materials and equipment, and transportation techniques.

Our Keyword is "Quality"

Artworks are extremely valuable and irreplaceable items. In addition to traditional handling techniques, our internal training programs also include basic training, practical application training and instructor training, all of which are implemented in stages and involve the mindset required for handling such articles, to ensure our high-quality services.

Organizing Safe Transportation in Conjunction with Other Departments and Overseas Agencies

The artworks we handle are varied in kind, from small handcrafted items through to large and priceless artifacts, and the need for transporting such items on an international scale is becoming more and more apparent. We provide these diversified needs by maintaining firm links with air freight and ocean freight departments, as well as heavy haulage departments and overseas agencies, to ensure safe transportation.
