JAPANESE construction and real estate firm Fukuda and Partners and Asia-Pacific business transformation consultancy TMX have announced a new strategic partnership agreement.

With the recent rapid change and challenges global supply chains have faced, Fukuda and Partners and TMX have signed a partnership to empower businesses across the Asia-Pacific region as they undergo their supply chain transformations.

This partnership will strengthen the capabilities of the complementary businesses and enable a fully integrated supply chain, property and construction service with on-the-ground experts across the region.

Fukuda and Partners’ clients looking to expand outside of Japan will be supported by TMX’s presence in Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.

TMX’s clients will be supported with Fukuda and Partners’ experts in Japan to provide essential local knowledge of the property market and construction standards.

Travis Erridge, CEO of TMX said, “We previously worked with Fukuda and Partners on a supply chain network in Australia for a major Japanese fashion retailer.

“Together we brought local expertise and understanding to various parts of the project and created a seamless process for the client.

“We want to continue this cross-region localised service for our shared clients across Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia,” he said.

Mr Fukuda, president and CEO of Fukuda and Partners said, “We have had positive feedback from our client, one of the biggest retailers in Japan, on the results of our professional services with TMX building their supply chain network in Australia.

“TMX and Fukuda are both very focused on logistics related construction and real estate services, so we believe that we can create constructive collaboration for mutual benefit.

“Logistics is the lifeline connecting people in daily life, so we believe that the outcome of this partnership will contribute to building sustainable development in our society,” Mr Fukuda said.
