Automotive Components Business Business
Utilizing Nissan Trading's global trading and logistics know-how, we supply a wide range of products, from prototype to mass production to repair parts, to customers in the Nissan Group and beyond. By supplying the batteries and electronics components that are incorporated in cars such as BEVs, HEVs, and PHEVs, in recent years we have also been actively working to provide the advanced products and services that will support the future of the automobile society.
Reviewing supply chains has become one of the top priorities for companies, such as by responding to new geopolitical risks and achieving SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) like decarbonization. Making full use of Nissan Trading's distribution network and bases around the world, the Automotive Components Business Division, based on the production plans of Alliance companies, provides stable supply/demand management and logistics/quality control for the parts that are procured.
We solve a variety of problems in procuring parts from overseas, whether it be for a single bolt or for advanced technology parts, and support our customers so that they can concentrate on the production of high-quality products.
- Responding to New Mobility
- Due to electrification and vehicle intelligence, there have been significant changes to the products we handle, such as drive batteries and electronics components.
In order for our customers to procure the most competitive parts from around the world, we support the strengthening of our customers' competitiveness according to the characteristics of each parts by constructing procurement routes, developing packaging, and developing and proposing safe and efficient transportation products that fully utilize land, sea, and air.
- Making Supply Chains Resilient
- The semiconductors and natural resources used in automobiles are not an infinite resource, so we are developing next-generation ERP (system for management of orders and supply chains) for the stable supply of materials, and are further strengthening our global supply and demand management functions.
- Carbon Reduction Efforts
- Reducing CO2 emissions across the entire supply chain has become a major issue, and we are promoting a supply chain that can handle the carbon-neutral era, such as by developing transportation modes with low CO2 emissions and adopting new materials for packaging.

We support the global procurement of automobile parts by building an optimal supply chain for the Alliance companies of Nissan Motor, Renault, and Mitsubishi Motors, as well as for other companies and parts manufacturers.
Vehicle Prototype Parts
For vehicles under development, we procure parts from more than 100 overseas suppliers and then supply them to the Nissan Technical Center (Atsugi City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan) and to Japanese parts manufacturers.
In order to support Nissan Motor's development and trial production, we procure not just prototype parts, but also experimental parts for the development of future new technologies and equipment for measuring part performance.
Mass Production Parts
We have global networks and logistics around the world, and are building a automobile parts supply chain. We also have consistent systems for global parts procurement, such as for the development of efficient transportation modes and packaging design via logistics engineering, for quality control of parts and logistics, and for JIT supply from customers' nearby warehouses, etc.
Additionally, even amongst all the automobile parts we handle, we are we are developing new fasteners such as nuts and bolts, and, together with Nissan Motor, are promoting the overseas production of parts (localizing production).
