In close alliance with the People’s Committee of Binh Duong, where the facility is located, we installed electricity, water and toilet facilities to prepare the space to be operational ready as a treatment centre. SUPPORTING LOCAL DISASTER PREPAREDNESS EFFORTS IN KANAGAWA, JAPAN In December 2021, we announced an agreement with the government of Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan, a prefecture of over 9 million residents, to offer our facilities to support the smooth and speedy implementation of disaster response in the area susceptible to natural disaster. Under the “Agreement on the establishment of a disaster relief emergency supplies transport hub”, ESR will work closely with authorities and emergency personnel in Kanagawa Prefecture to maintain a stable delivery hub. This safeguards the continuation of goods transportation when supply lines are disrupted by providing space in its primelylocated modern distribution centres. The seven facilities included in the agreement are: ESR Namamugi Distribution Centre, ESR Kawasaki Yako Distribution Centre, ESR Chigasaki Distribution Centre, ESR Yokohama Sachiura Distribution Centres 1&2, ESR Kawasaki Ukishima Distribution Centre and ESR Higashi Ogishima Distribution Centre. They are amongst ESR’s very best logistics facilities – built with the highest degree of human-centric features and the latest technology.
