    JAPAN : EPSON & CANON WORKING TOGETHER TO GET EMPTY INK CARTRIDGES BACK
    Epson and Canon Gain Efficiency through Joint Distribution Operations
    Two
    major Japanese printer manufacturers, Seiko Epson Corp. and Canon Inc.,
    began joint distribution operations between their sales subsidiaries
    (Epson Sales Japan Corp. and Canon Marketing Japan Inc.) in June 2009
    in order to handle shipments to some retail stores. The objective is to
    reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions while improving the efficiency of
    their businesses.

    Both companies operate their own distribution
    center in each major city. However, they had been considering a joint
    shipping process because they share destinations and requirements when
    shipping to mass retailers of household appliances, such as home
    printers.Having verified that employing Nippon Express Co. – a freight
    shipping company that both Epson and Canon already conduct business
    with – would allow smooth implementation, improved truck
    load-to-capacity ratios and reduced environmental burden, the companies
    agreed to proceed with the joint operations.

    The companies plan
    to gradually expand the coverage area nationwide, starting in the
    Sapporo area of Hokkaido Prefecture. As compared to the previous
    separate operations, the project is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions
    by approximately 26 percent.

    Although they are market
    competitors, Epson and Canon already have cooperative framework in
    place, such as the “Ink Cartridge Homecoming Project” to collect used
    ink cartridges, and hope to continue implementing such projects.
