Recycling hangers

There used to be two kinds of hangers available, one for transportation from distribution center to stores and the other for display at stores. There were issues of changing from transportation hangers to display hangers, scrapping and keeping storing them.

NANIWA solved this by commoditizing two kinds of hangers and regularly collecting the hangers left after sales and achieved reduction of work-load, time, space and cost all at once.

Folded Container

Scrapping cardboard at every deliveries made, especially by department stores and chain stores, resulted in waste of resources and cost, especially department stores and chain stores.

NANIWA uses folded containers replacing cardboard to reduce logistics cost and help conservation of forest resources as one of actions for environmental protection.
