Lack of personnel in logistics industry improves
The logistics industry in Japan has a serious shortage of manpower, the driver is excessive labor, and the company creates various problems unless supply can not keep up with demand for logistics.

By doing such an approach here, the route is maintained, and deterioration of convenience due to abolition of the route can be avoided.
