About us

Since our inception 16 years ago, we at PAL have had the singular goal of bringing out the best productivity possible in the realm of logistics, all while reducing associated costs. Our deep experience is rooted in our many years of knowledge accumulated implementing logistics system, creating IT solutions for management tools and the like.
Now, based on this solid bedrock of knowledge, we are poised to introduce a new age in logistics platforms – platforms based on “Warehouses leveraging artificial intelligence and IoT” and “Work processes created through a synergy of robotics and people.”

By bringing labor saving measures that push the envelope combined with best-in-class efficiency, we are bringing a dramatic change to productivity in the traditionally labor intensive logistics arena of Japan.

PAL is set to guide Japan into the new age of logistics
