Philosophy and Strategy

Japan Shipping Services Co., Ltd.(Jship) is a Tokyo-based independent shipbrokering group, modest in size. As its basic policy, Jship emphasizes quality and competence of varied services it provides rather than pursuing outright business expansion.

“Sincerity” is the most important factor for Jship. If, for instance, some other broker is found more capable in certain business, Jship would not hesitate to recommend such channel even to its closely related customer. Jship is also trying to be attentive enough to pick up such market data or other information as useful for its customers instead of simply conveying a bunch of messages as they are. Jship firmly believes this clientele-oriented way of providing services will further strengthen the long-standing, mutual relationship with its customers.

Yoshifumi (Yoshi) Takeda, founder and chief executive of Jship, has a shipbroking career of more than 25 years. Earlier, he was stationed in London for 3 years, thereby learning a lot about the way of thinking or attitude of Western shipbrokers. There are a number of shipbrokers operating in Japan but Yoshi has a feeling that, with major trading houses set aside, the shipbrokering business in Japan is not so highly valued as in London, Oslo or Piraeus. He thus wants to steer Jship in such direction as more focusing on a role of business coordinator or creator.

Japan is an archipelago totally surrounded by open seas and people living there have a unique culture or emotional feature. Despite the ongoing globalization, it appears that some aspects of Japan may be still difficult for foreigners to understand. In this respect, Jship strongly wishes to be a business entity capable of precisely presenting or introducing such aspects on the world marketplace. Also, Japan is increasingly exposed to fierce competition with its highly potential neighbors like Korea and China. However, Jship believes there will always be some alterative way for doing business, thus looking forward to opportunities of working together with overseas-based shipowners, operators or shipbrokers.
