Philanthrophy  vol.67 Lawson Mitsubishi
Corporation Lawson Rolls Out Shop Trucks
Developed by Mitsubishi Corp.

After introducing its first convenience shop trucks in 2012, Lawson has been expanding its shop-on-wheels business targeting elderly customers who find it difficult to visit regular stores and people living in remoter areas. As well as aiming at future expansion of its customer base by creating a range of customer groups it has been unable to acquire at its regular convenience stores, Lawson is also working to improve its community-based services by carrying out a “community watching service” that reaches out to and checks the safety and well-being of elderly households.
     The Motor Vehicle Business Division of Mitsubishi Corporation delivered the first shop truck to the Lawson Kameda General Hospital Shop (Kamogawa City, Chiba Prefecture) on March 30, 2017, and since then it has been delivering shop trucks to Lawson stores throughout the country. The shop trucks are unique in being able to store food products at a constant temperature of 4°C and for their loading capacity of being able to stock up to 300 items.
