Aeon turns to Japan Post for Asian shipments

Japanese retailer Aeon operates 3,800 outlets in China, South Korea and Southeast Asia, such as this one in Indonesia.

TOKYO -- Retail giant Aeon will use Japan Post Holdings' network to procure materials and ship products across the Asia-Pacific region, expanding their domestic partnership abroad in a bid to tap the region's economic growth.

Aeon this month will begin using Australian logistics company Toll Holdings, which the holding company's postal unit acquired last year, to import Australian beef to Japan for use in its private-brand products. A formal announcement will be made Friday.
