Yamato Holdings has tied up with All Nippon Airways (ANA) to use Okinawa Prefecture as a hub from which to broaden its reach through Asia, according to Nikkei Report. Yamato will start a new overnight delivery service to major cities throughout Asia from ANA’s cargo hub at Naha airport.

ANA opened the Naha cargo hub in October 2009. Just a few hours away from Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong and Hanoi, Naha airport is the base for facilitating regional next-day delivery services throughout Northeast and Southeast Asia.
