Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies (CJPT) has announced its commitment to accelerate its efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and address logistics challenges through the creation of a new company, Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies Asia Co., Ltd. (CJPT-Asia ), in Thailand. Additionally, CJPT has re-engaged Hino Motors Ltd. (Hino) into its collaborative efforts.
Since its founding in 2021, CJPT has played a pivotal role in promoting a carbon-neutral society through the adoption of CASE (Connectivity, Automation, Electric Propulsion and Sharing Systems) technologies and has collaborated with its partners to ease the burden of drivers and workers, thus contributing to solving logistical challenges.
The organization believes that it is “time to act decisively to improve Japan’s competitiveness.”
Last December, CJPT reached an agreement with Charoen Pokphand Group and Siam Cement Group in Thailand to promote carbon neutrality initiatives tailored to the Thai context.
This approach is designed to improve the quality of life for Thailand’s 67 million people and promotes collaboration with partners who share a similar vision.

To strengthen its efforts in Thailand, CJPT-Asia will be established, involving Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), Isuzu Motors Limited, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. and Hino Motors Ltd. The new entity will focus on mobility solutions, data solutions and energy solutions in the region.
As far as Hino is concerned, its participation in CJPT was suspended in August 2022 due to irregularities in certification tests that were not in line with CJPT values.
However, after a year of efforts to reform corporate culture and regain trust, CJPT has decided to reinstate Hino in recognition of its importance in creating a carbon-neutral society in Japan and Asia, as well as resolving logistical problems.
CJPT will continue to collaborate with Hino on relevant agreements and projects, including the implementation of carbon neutrality initiatives in Fukushima and Tokyo. Toyota will transfer 10% of its stake in CJPT (which is currently 70%) to Hino.
Aiming to advance sustainable measures for society, such as carbon neutrality and solving logistics challenges in 2024, CJPT will expand its network of like-minded partners to strengthen and accelerate its
