Hoshi Corporation has received a licence from Okinawa Regional Customs to operate Japan’s first bonded cosmetic factory.

The company will therefore be able to offer made-in-Japan manufacturing for export without custom clearance for its international clients.

The company currently serves more than 700 overseas clients, exporting mainly to Asian and Oceania countries. The Okinawa logistics base will reduce costs and lead times as well as offer storage and cross border e-commerce support.
