Plywood for logistics (wooden box packing) ・ Contribution to SDGs ・ Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry promotion chemSHERPA support ・ New standard for packing industry ・ Looking at overseas sales ……………………………………………………………………………………………
Honda Mokuzai Co., Ltd. (Chofu City, Tokyo, Representative Director Kiyonori Honda) and Meiwa Sangyo Co., Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President Takeshi Yoshida, First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange) have announced that “improvement in the quality of packaging materials” in Japan’s logistics and logistics. And, with the aim of “contributing to sustainable development goals (SDGs),” we are jointly developing products, and water repellency and prevention are compatible with “chemSHERPA” promoted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. We have completed and started selling plywood for logistics (wooden box packing) with mold function, product name “WATER & MOLD BLOCK Plywood for packing (water-repellent and mold-proof specially processed plywood for packing)”. I will do it.
In the field of plywood for logistics (wooden box packing), product specifications with water-repellent and antifungal functions added at the same time and products compatible with “chemSHERPA” are precedents not only in Japan but also in the world. It will be an epoch-making product.

[About water-repellent and antifungal functions]
It is assumed that the period from manufacturing in Vietnam to domestic inventory in Japan to manufacturing wooden boxes to unpacking at the export destination is about 6 months, and water and mold prevention functions are applied with the aim of withstanding that period. Did. (Note that this product does not completely prevent water and mold. The water and mold repellency effect gradually diminishes with the storage environment, usage, and the passage of time from manufacturing.)
■ Industrial products manufactured in Japan and exported to countries around the world are becoming more value-added (high-tech), such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
■ Traditionally, high value-added products such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment exported from Japan have been mainly transported by air freight. However, due to the increase in the handling volume in recent years, it has become difficult to handle the quantity by air freight, and the ratio of transportation by sea freight is increasing.
■ In general, sea freight is often placed in a harsher environment (rain wetness, changes in temperature and humidity, etc.) than air freight, and logistics is stagnant due to the deterioration of market conditions due to the recent corona disaster. (Packing) Freight (wooden boxes) packed by businesses are now being stored for a long time in the wind and rain in Japan and export countries. This causes accidents such as flooding into the wooden box and the growth of mold. ■ Along with these changes, the logistics industry is demanding packaging materials (plywood, etc.) that are suitable for (tolerate) adverse environments and have water-repellent and antifungal functions.
■ On the other hand, today, consideration for environmental
conservation and efforts for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are regarded as important not only in Japan but all over the world. In order for the Japanese manufacturing industry and the logistics industry to improve their competitiveness in global competition in the future, it is essential to actively work on them, and the selection of materials related to logistics is also conscious of the global environment ( It is necessary to select materials (such as proper management of chemical substances contained in products).
■ Fall 2019. At the initiative of a certain logistics company who is in charge of logistics operations for high value-added products (semiconductor manufacturing equipment), “Toward sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the future development of the Japanese logistics industry. We would like you to consider and develop high-quality (water-repellent and antifungal functions) packaging materials that can withstand changes in logistics conditions (increased marine cargo, stagnation of cargo, etc.). ” We received. Honda Mokuzai formed a project team with Meiwa Corp. based on past development results of packaging materials, and development started. It was completed in the fall of 2020 this year. In addition, this product “WATER & MOLD BLOCK Plywood for packing (water-repellent and anti-mold specially processed plywood for packing)” is scheduled to be applied for a utility model.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015 for a sustainable and better world by 2030. Consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets, in 12.4 of “12. Responsibility to Create and Responsibility to Use”, “By 2020, in accordance with the agreed international framework, environmentally friendly chemical substances throughout the product life cycle In order to realize the management of all wastes and minimize the adverse effects on human health and the environment, we will significantly reduce the release of chemical substances and wastes into the air, water and soil. ” ..
