Mazda Enhances Green Distribution System Between Hiroshima and the Tokai DistrictSubmitted by Berny on Monday, July 9, 2007 - 19:32
- Commences use of newly designed, exclusive rail containers in round trip rail transport system -

—To improve the efficiency of collection and transport of vehicle parts, as part of its Green Distribution System between Hiroshima and the Tokai District (central Japan), Mazda Motor Corporation today (July 2, 2007) began using newly designed, exclusive cargo containers in its rail transport circuit. The new rail containers are 31 feet (9.4 meters) long, more than double the length of the containers used before, and allow for a significant improvement in transport efficiency. The Green Distribution System includes Mazda’s milk-run system*1, which uses a single truck to collect parts from multiple suppliers, and a modal shift*2 from truck to rail for service part shipments. Mazda expects these improvements will reduce energy requirements for logistics between the regions by 27 percent annually.

Source: by John Neff

Recently a privileged video released without Mazda's permission was leaked onto the internet. In the video, a member of the Mazda National Dealer Advisory Council states, "Mazda is well aware of the negative impact on the scores caused by the RX-8 surveys. They agreed with us that the situation had to be changed. And so, effective July 1st, RX-8 will be continued to be included in the survey, but the scores will no longer be included in the results."
