HTB-BCD Travel's management philosophy is "In the global society, we will make efforts to create values together with our customers and contribute to the society as a corporate responsibility." With this philosophy, we are developing our business with the following management vision: "To become a travel infrastructure that is most frequently chosen by customers."
Amid the rapidly changing world environment, in the innovation-oriented society, problems nagging customers are becoming diversified and complicated, which makes it necessary for the business travel industry to comprehensively handle multiple solutions.
In the face of this reality, we decided to continue to challenge the changes and shift our focus to become a "Business Travel Management Company" that comprehensively provides overseas and domestic business trip support as well as support for incentive trips and overseas and domestic conferences and events.
As a new kind of business, in April 2011, we established a business partnership with BCD Travel which has the third largest business share in the global business travel industry. Since then, we have been providing travel management services for the Japanese branches of the client companies that have global contracts with BCD Travel.
We will try to provide solutions for all aspects of business travels by integrating know-how on business travels that we have accumulated for half a century since the company’s establishment and the global standard services. We will continue to respond to diverse needs of our customers without fail and will contribute to their creation of values as a provider of travel infrastructure. We appreciate your continued support.

In recent years, there is a strong demand from both the market and society itself for companies to ensure compliance with laws and regulations and also uphold high ethical standards. At the Hitachi Transport System Group, we strive to develop and strengthen our compliance system, working to ensure that compliance is upheld and to foster a "high corporate culture of ethics"; one that is committed to sound and appropriate corporate activities, with the aim of being a company that is trusted by its customers.
At the HTS group, we have an appointed compliance officer (CCO) who oversees the compliance activities and initiatives of the entire group. In addition, the sales operations department, domestic group companies and overseas regional headquarters, all have an appointed compliance supervisor in place as we work to develop and strengthen the compliance system. In regards to the status of compliance within the group, the Compliance Officer has to make regular reports to the Auditing Committee as well as to the President and CEO.
In order to help prevent illegal actions and/or inappropriate actions, and in order to detect and rectify any problems quickly, we have established an internal whistleblowing and consultation system. This system is available to all workers at the HTS Group, including directors, full-time staff, part-timers and temporary workers at both the Company itself and all of its group companies. The HTS Group protects the personal information of the caller, and ensures confidentiality of the report, as well as prohibiting any disadvantageous treatment related to the issue, in order to protect whistleblowers.
We understand the importance of properly storing and managing both customer information and internal information. As a group, we work to maintain and raise our security level through the establishment of regulations, employee education and training as we strive to deliver customers with a safe, reliable and secure logistics service.
