1. Background

In recent years, the AEASN E-Commerce market is on a rapid growth with the rise of the Internet. Singapore, as the greatest economic power in Southeast Asia, has an increasing need to purchase high quality Japanese agricultural and fishery products from the different regions through e-commerce sites.

Isetan Singapore first launched our e-commerce site, I ONLINE in 2009. With its rich history as a Japanese departmental store since 1972, Isetan Singapore continues to satisfy customers’ growing expectations for genuine and superior quality Japanese food through exploring different channels.

Yamato Transport and ANA Cargo, air cargo affiliate company of the largest Japanese airline group, enhanced their partnership since May 2015 through the reinforcement of their business model based on Okinawa cargo hub at Okinawa’s Naha airport. Through this, they developed new markets for Japan agricultural products in Asia through e-commerce.

Isetan Singapore, Yamato Transport and ANA Cargo will sell superior quality Japanese agricultural products on I ONLINE and deliver to Singapore. This will create opportunities for Japanese producers and satisfy Singapore consumers’ demands for fresh Japanese food.

2. Business Model Outline - Creating New Cross-Border E-Commerce Site

Isetan Singapore will have an e-commerce site,“ISETAN JAPAN DIRECT” for Singaporean consumers to purchase high quality Japanese foods.
