Greetings from CEO

Arato Co., Ltd. was founded in 1958 by Haruo Sugi, the founder, as “Arato Transport Store” and started its business by long-distance transportation of fresh fish and fruits and vegetables from Kyushu to Tokyo on gravel roads.

Currently, we specialize in the transportation and delivery of frozen, chilled, and dried foods from Kyushu to Kanto and in the Kyushu area.

We are committed to repaying the kindness of the local community that has warmly nurtured us over the past 60 years since our establishment. With this as our mission, we will continue to strengthen our core business of transportation and respond flexibly to the new era through new businesses.

CEO, Ryota Akatsuka
