Nippon Express Denies Abolition of "Pelican" Parcel Service

Nippon Express Co. denied a news report that its “Pelican”-brand parcel delivery service will be abolished when the company and Japan Post Service Co. integrate their door-to-door package delivery operations in April 2009.

The major Japanese daily Asahi reported in its Monday morning edition that the 30-year-old Pelican brand will be scrapped as Nippon Express and Japan Post Service are set to use the latter’s “You-pack” brand for their joint parcel delivery operations.

Nippon Express and Japan Post Service, a postal service unit of Japan Post Holdings Co., will set up a fifty-fifty joint firm, named JP Express, in June this year to prepare for the integration.

Given that Japan Post Service will later take majority control of JP Express, there is still a possibility of the Pelican brand being scrapped for integration into the You-pack brand.
