Some foresee unstoppable tides approaching the Japanese market, which are triggered by non other than the U.S. retailing giantess Amazon. The battle, between Amazon and a league of Japanese companies including 7-Eleven, Yodobashi Camera, Askul, and other competitors, is going to change the industry once and for all. This book, while focusing on Amazon's global strategy, depicts those ongoing changes taking place in Japan through speculation and analysis on unique local models in the Japanese market with a comparative point of view across the U.S. business models.
The author of this book is a professional of logistic services in relation to the eCommerce sector who serves as a consultant with his cross-sectional knowledge and personal business connection throughout the major retailing, logistics, and marketing companies. He also serves as a CEO of an eCommerce logistics company in Japan which fact proves himself to be one of the most appropriate writers for the book.
The book is a must-read for all business persons in the retailing, distribution, and logistics industries in both the U.S. and Japan who are eager to learn from failed or successful business models on a cross-national basis.
It has been translated from one of the best selling publications by Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK) in Japan, which sold over 20,000 copies in the first weeks.
