(President: Makoto Sekioka) are handling the international transport of reconstructed dinosaur skeletons and other items for the popular "Dinosaurs of Gondwana" exhibition that takes place at the National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno, Tokyo from March until June 21, 2009.
The YAS Group carries the reconstructed skeletons of eight dinosaurs and 18 fossils from Brazil and Argentina, including those being put on public display for the first time anywhere in the world, such as the Mapusaurus from Argentina, the highlight of the exhibition.
The YAS Group has received an order to handle the arrangements for international round-trip transport between Japan and Brazil, the necessary work and formalities in Brazil and one-way international transport from Japan to Argentina. Transport to Japan has already been completed. Preparations are now being made to provide a failsafe service for the shipment from Japan to the South American destinations.
YAS has impressive results in the international transport of stage equipment for operas, musical instruments for orchestras and other items for cultural events, exhibitions and sporting events. YAS continues to work to improve the quality of its transport services and contribute to world cultural development and exchange through its international logistical services.
