Daiwa House to offer Japan's largest day care at huge warehouse

Child care provided to attract female workers, ease labor shortage

Daiwa House operates this logistics warehouse in Sendai, northern Japan.

OSAKA -- Japanese homebuilder Daiwa House Industry looks to match its plan for the nation's biggest logistics complex, now under construction, with the country's largest day-care center to cater to the mothers it hopes to recruit.

The care center will be capable of looking after up to 600 children, an amenity designed to attract female workers to ease the crippling labor shortage in the nation's logistics sector. Daiwa House's facility will employ about 8,000 people, of which 6,000 will be part-time and primarily female workers.
